This blog began as a place for photos of a Decatur, Georgia, neighborhood cannibalizing itself through teardowns and mansionization. The properties pictured in these posts were surveyed in the 2009 Decatur citywide survey of historic resources. They are one of several types of properties: teardowns; mansionized small houses; or, McMansions constructed as infill. In two chronological parts, this blog has posts created between September 2011 and August 2012 during the 11 months I lived in Decatur. The second part of the blog, which begins in September 2012, continues the documentation of teardowns and mansionization in Decatur’s Oakhurst neighborhood.
