There’s a lot of construction going on in my neighborhood. It seems that any house that used to be a bungalow is being purchased and turned into a two or three story home.
The house down the street, one that used to have very undesirable renters in it for several years, has been torn down and in it’s place two three story houses are going up in it’s place. Apparently the man who owned the former home has been trying to get permission from the city to rebuild there for years – and probably trying to get his renters out for that long too.
Anyway once he finally got permission and got his renters out it seemed the houses went up in no time at all. I think they tore down the old house in March or April and the new houses are up and just about finished already. There’s even signs on the property trying to sell the houses – I’m assuming at some future date when they expect them to be finished. Man that was fast.
Of course there’s still lots of work going. From my house I can see everything from Cement trucks going back and forth to back hoes and a used skid steer and several other pieces of heavy machinery. I’m just glad that it’s way down the street so I don’t have to hear all the noise!
