Renewal

This semi-detached home in the Annex neighbourhood is undergoing a total renovation as you can see from this pic I took in September. It was built in 1892 and I'm sure this isn't the first time it has been fixed up but I bet this is the most extensive since they have even lowered the basement floor to give more head space down there. If we ever get some sunny days I will head by for a progress shot.

Such a fine, distinguished-looking building. Hey, maybe HGTV is doing the reno? "Love It or List It?"

Looks like a stunner even with all the plywood. What potential!

I'm happy that so eone is giving this old beauty a facelift Pat, as they say 'it has good bones'.. Would love to see it a bit further down the renovation line!

I'm sure that renovation is going to cost a pretty penny. Wouldn't you love to see the inside after it's all done?

It is going to be a beauty after the renovations are finished. It has an elegant charm.

I've often admired what I call "turrets" in houses of this period. I'm very glad I don't have to heat it, though.
