not-so-extreme makeover…

…but still awesome anyway. Ok, so sorry about the delay in posting, my dear one reader, I promise to do better in the future. I just know you’ve been hanging on the edge of your seat to see what I’m going to say next. That last post left a bad taste in my mouth, so I decided I should write about something positive happening in my neighborhood. A couple of small, delapidated houses the next street over are in the midst of going through a little rehab. Behold:

 

Currently, they look like this:

 

 

Nothing too fancy, but they were completely gutted and reinforced structurally. Nothing makes me happier than seeing older homes restored and preserved where possible. I love it when people can see potential in structures without resorting to demolition as the only option. Just warms my little heart.

I would love to see something done to this vacant house or better yet, I would love to do something to it. Baby steps, Tamara, baby steps.

By the way, if you live in Lexington, do you know about the Fayette Co. PVA website? That’s where I found my “before” pictures, you can search any property in Lexington and find information about it. Addictive.

Are there properties in your neighborhood that have undergone extensive rehab? I’d love to hear about it!
