Rob and Josh appear to be right on schedule, building their house on Corley. October was to be stucco month and there it is, going on. [Blog history]
The other place on the street I’ve been following is the one I call the Corley Half House. It’s been nearly two years since occupants of both sides of the semi-detached homes had to be evacuated. A basement-lowering mishap on the missing side necessitated complete removal of that side. The other side remains standing, but still empty.
At last, there is evidence of activity on the site. Cleaning up the foundation will be interesting. Shortly after the initial collapse, a crew was called in to pour 4 feet of concrete through the basement windows, to stabilize things before the compromised side was completely torn down. Workers said everything in the basement … furnace, appliances, etc., would be encased. Now, I guess it all has to be dug out … carefully.
