A house ended...
No, a storm didn’t cause this destruction. This house is being demolished in order to build a new home on the site. Many houses in this part of town date from the 1890s – early 1900s. Many of them were Sears kit homes, bungalow style. The owners of this house originally wanted to add a second story. But after examining the condition of the building, they decided it would be cheaper to demolish and rebuild than to restore.
They have salvaged what they can from the old structure, and say the new house will look very similar to the old, be of the same architectural style. It will be interesting to watch the transformation.

Old houses mended,
Cost little less than new before they're ended.
