Some readers are following developments of two houses on Corley avenue. The first, an innovative build that began with a special foundation technique. The pied à terre uses only the space formerly occupied by a double garage. With the stucco now on, it’s becoming rather elegant.
For handy reference, here’s the lot before building began.
Finally, progress on the Corley “half house”
Nearly two years after a basement-lowering went wrong, new foundations are going in where half of the semi-detached building had to be removed. The side that wasn’t demolished had to be evacuated, so two families were displaced. I can only guess that insurance claims and responsibilities had to be sorted out before repairs and reconstruction could begin.
I’ve been following the story since it started. Nice to see some action. Now I am curious to see what will replace the missing side.
