We're Dom and James. Two guys who live together in Chicago, doing neat things, cooking good food, building stuff, big and small. We wander the world aimlessly, seeking inspiration, be it from pegboard, empty bottles of patron, or tumble weave. None of it fit to print, so we put it here instead. This site is to document the apartments that we've renovated, various building projects, what James cooks and what Dom eats. 

What does "The Heart and The Wurm" mean? Dom's last name is Cordilla, which is loosely Cordelia, which is loosely translate from Latin to "heart". James' last name is Wurm, which, by the way, is German for "worm".

We hope you enjoy yourselves.
