Before & After ~ Ripley, OH rescued Italianate.

This house It is a great example of what is possible when people work together to save a house. After three decades of abandonment, this house had lost its roof and the rear ell had partially collapsed. The house was condemned and awaiting demolition.

A group of local residents came together to buy it and stabilize it with a new roof and structural repairs. They then sold it to a family committed to restoring it. The new owners did much of the work themselves.

Every house can’t be saved and some truly are too far gone to be saved, but many houses are destroyed every year that could have been saved. Knowing it is possible is often the first critical step toward accomplishing something good.

I wrote “Restoring Your Historic House, The Comprehensive Guide for Homeowners” to help people know what is possible, and how to achieve it.
