The headline picture on this blog was taken from a house on my street. That house is currently under major renovation and, until recently, belonged to a very notorious slumlord in Richmond. In fact, five houses are currently being flipped/just flipped in the span of two blocks on my street. Only one of those houses had residents that were required to move (due to their extended family selling the house). All four of the others, I’m happy to say, were unoccupied, and will soon be put to better use!
It’s refreshing to see these houses being brought to new life, to be homes for lives and new stories within them.
