The first segment of his career he lived at 16 Castle street but by 1835 had moved to Madison Avenue. He moved again sometime prior to 1845 to 403 Sassafras street. Finally, he moved to his last known residence, 403 Race street in 1854. Colladay served three terms on the Managing Committee of the Carpenters Company in 1846-48, 1850-52, and 1854-56.
