Well, it's finally happening in my neighborhood, on my street even. A teardown.
My street is all small cottages (mostly brick), between 900-1100 square feet (mine's 1030 sf). Most were built in the 1940's (mine in 1946) and I just love living here.
But time marches on and it looks like we're getting our first teardown. It's 708 Kimbrough, three houses down from me. Here's what it looked like this morning:
By the end of the day, this is what's left:
I'm sure that whatever monstrosity they throw up will be way too big and out of character with the neighborhood. Nothing I can do about that but accept it. I just hope they don't build the damn thing too close to the street. Every lot on my side of the street is 200-feet deep; they should at least line it up with the rest of the houses on the street and run it deeper into the lot.
Guess I'll find out when I get home in 5 weeks…
