I think I've mentioned before that I live in a very eclectic neighborhood. My neighborhood is designated the "historic district" of my city. (i.e. old houses) The neighborhood also borders a university. (i.e. old houses subdivided into lots of student apartments.) So, we have a real mix in the neighborhood. You can read all about that here .
The house above is down the street from Buttermilk Cottage and has set vacant since I've been here. The picture above was actually taken before renovations began last year, but the appearance of the house is pretty close to what it looked like when I moved into my house.
Last summer the house was purchased. I snapped some pictures along the rehab process.
Siding going on!
And voila! Quite an improvement! The house is now on the market. Let's hope a nice family takes up residence soon and gives this house the TLC it needs!
