Despite its proximity to a rather busy road (check out the guardrail and the sharp turn warning apparatus practically in the front yard), this house sits on the outer edge of a very nice neighborhood with a great location. I figured it was an elderly teardown that was being sacrificed to make way for some hideous McMansion, which is all people seem to want around here these days.
But on a later visit, I noticed something intriguing, so I detoured from my usual route to take a better look. It is possible that they saved what they could and will build around it, and recreate what couldn't be saved? Can it be that they are in love with those beautiful old windows and the soul of this house, just as I would be?
It sure looks that way to me. I think what I see is a new footer going into the ground, and the beginnings of corner pillars that match the corners that are still standing. I wish I knew more about construction!
