Homeowners Kevin Costello and Karen Shen fulfilled a lifelong dream with their recent purchase of a 1904 Renaissance Revival brownstone in the historic Prospect Heights area of Brooklyn. In order to make this dream a reality, they had to come up with an affordable plan to defray mortgage costs. The solution was to turn part of the brownstone into rental units. Once the renovation is complete, the owners plan to rent both the garden and third floor levels, leaving the middle two floors as living space for themselves and their three young children. As the family grows, they hope to one day afford to reclaim the third floor for their private use.
