If that house can be saved, anything can be saved. I walked past it yesterday and there is a lot of activitity inside that building, lots of framing and walls going up. I wonder how close the retored turret will be to the original?

I love the shot of the turret base with the snow.
Good eye, Andrew.

How's work on Lucien Moore coming?

When a building is this far gone, is it really a restoration or an identical replacement?

I think it might even be cheaper to bulldoze it and build a complete copy of it from scratch. But it's nice to know that it's getting fixed up.

What did it look like when it was still in one piece?

It will get a new modern house built inside it's brick exterior, If it's like the brownstone on John R rehab.

The brownstone on John R was in a similar mess. They gutted out all of the interior and tied new construction into the existing brick exterior shell.

....catching up with the news

I have noticed brick line walls on the interior of this dwelling(if i am not mistaken) Was this the norm for these houses in this area???

I have been monitoring the progress of this one for a long time now. I can't wait to see the finished product

Thats a lot of love for architecture and history to restore that. And its awsome that someone cares that much. I love architecture and history as much as anyone, but that sure is a undertaking. Will look foward to seeing the final pic!! Thanks, and keep us updated.
