    I hope it’s not that huge beautiful house on the corner that’s being completely renovated.

      It is that house.  Looks all contained now and they are wrapping things up.  They’ve done a fantastic remodeling job, it would have been a shame if it had been worse.  Thankful.

        Oh no, I pass it often and am so impressed by all the work being done. Thank goodness it wasn’t worse. Thank you

Sorry, comment time is over.
