Top popped - adding 2nd floor in Morningside.

Built in 1930, 1730 square feet on 1/5 acre, it's getting taller.


This wasn't it's prettiest day.

I caught this one before they started demolition.

The houses on either side have already be done; they are big now.

This was in pretty good shape, it was holding it's on.

They've added a foundation for a big front porch. Looks like they are keeping most of the front. Good idea.

There's going to be some 3rd floor living space.

I'll report.

  1. That was a sweet little house to start with. Glad they seem to be keeping some original elements. I love the front door.
    And your blog! So glad I stumbled upon it!

  2. This should be interesting to watch. I wonder how it's going to turn out with that thick cornice board separating the first and second stories?

  3. The cornice is nice and there also a brick soldier band at the level of the 1st floor.

  4. I walked by this one the other day. It looks like they're doing it right. The big windows in the upstairs copy the ones on the first floor--like that.
