The Neighborhouse Project

This is a photo journal of the new house being built across the alley from me. There are gaps in the early photos due to a harddrive crash.

I Live in an old neighborhood. The houses around here were originally built in 1952. On my block across the alley was a house that had burned. The woman who was living there was the daughter of the orginal owner.
She was living in the camper on the right.

A neighbor coalition bought the property, moved her, knocked down the old house and cleaned the lot.

Nothing happened for months.
Then in late December was a flurry of activity culminating in this shot of the perimeter bearing walls which are 14” above grade with the new building code.

I lost the photos of the concrete footer, the form work for the stem walls, and the plumbing lines.
They are there. This is the project after the plumbing waste lines are in and prior to pouring the concrete for the floor. Phoenix doesn’t do basements. After all, we are in a valley and when it does rain, it rains a lot.
