Progress! The quarters and garage are completely gone! The lot actually looks much better without them and I am encouraged by the clean slate. We also removed all of the old, scraggly ivy that had taken over much of facade. My “fairytale” house looks kind of like a nightmare right now. And somehow the smallest house ever looks even smaller…But not for long! Formwork for the new slab starts this week.
In addition, Preservation Houston (www.preservationhouston.org) ed us about becoming a designated Historic Houston home. Old House is so super old that it can be considered Historic – wow! I love this idea and am excited to start the process (thanks Courtney!)!
