Exactly a year ago, we brought 813-15 S. 19th St. to your attention. This double-wide home looked like no other we’d ever seen, and featured many unique architectural features inside, including a glass-enclosed courtyard in the middle of the house. Unfortunately, the original owners fell victim to the financial crunch in 2008, and lost the property, which then sat vacant for a couple of years.

A year ago, new owners stepped in, with plans to finish the building, which had become an eyesore. From the outside, you can see that progress has been made.

Current view. Much better.

We peeked inside, and there’s still a ton of work to be done. But it’s wonderful to see that this place is finally getting finished. Hopefully, we’ll be able to get a tour when it’s done.
