  1. I hope not, as there is a shortage of affordable housing and that would be removing occupancy.

    2. Better that people are safe than in a Hofgard death trap.

  2. I'd think that project is a tear down. There isn't really much left of the original house, what's standing is a framed out new building that has been open to the elements for a couple years.

  3. Looks like they will be "redeveloping" those houses (and others), and turning them into affordable housing. No details on what that means for the design:
