  1. Reblogged this on annladenberger and commented:
    My heart sank when I saw the construction fencing go up. I always thought this was such a cute house. I realize people with kids want more room, but there are ways to add on. Sadly, I fear this one’s a “teardown”. Such an ugly word for a perfectly serviceable and attractive home.

  2. Almost all of the rubble is gone as of this evening (Wednesday, Feb. 27, 2014). To me, tearing down this lovely home just seems like a terrible waste. I wonder if they at least salvaged or recycled any of the debris? Will someone please explain to me how any of this is “green” or environmentally sound? Even if you don’t give a hoot about preserving the look and feel of the Oakhurst neighborhood, I would think that anyone moving to Decatur, which is supposedly so progressive and environmentally-conscious, would not want to “throw out” a perfectly good house!
