Another "Before" picture

Merry Christmas, everyone!
I hadn't planned to post again until we're back at the house next Tuesday -- to start taking a series of "Good, Bad and Ugly" pics and videos. But, I came across this on the web and just had to post for everyone...

This photo is from the Anderson Downtown Neighbors Association web site which had the following to say about 824 W. 8th St. in 2005 ...
"This grand home is a sad story of restoration gone wrong. Empty for several years after a partial restoration, the home is for sale. It is a great property worthy of saving."
Just another glance at what we're getting into!


  1. If walls could talk!! I am sure that house has lots of stories to tell... I just love the grandness of it and can't wait to see what you will do to it.

  2. We can't either! :) ... LOTS of ideas and hopes, just have to be creative ($) to pull it all together. Stay tuned.
