Is the Houston Extreme Makeover: Home Edition home all those volunteers built for the Johnson family on Goodhope St. at last complete? Swamplot hasn’t been able to get an update: HHN Homes’ website has been out of commission for a couple of days, and the company’s email service may be down too. (Maybe that’s the best way for everyone there to get some much-needed rest after the double-overtime build?) Over the weekend, Swamplot photog Candace Garcia took a little stroll around the now-very-quiet construction site and came back with some interesting pictures, a few to-do items, and one burning question:
Where will they park?
Among her finds were a missing window on that turret in front,
a side yard that looked like it could use some attention,
and playground equipment awaiting final assembly:
Some building materials were camping out in front of neighboring properties.
The drainage ditch across the street from the home looked like this:
In front of the Johnson family’s new house, there’s now a drainage pipe instead of a ditch:
But on the west side it doesn’t seem to connect to the adjacent property:
A gate on the opposite side of the house marks the entrance to office space for the Johnsons’ nonprofit. But it doesn’t look like it’ll keep anybody out. Will a fence be going in here somewhere?
The house next door at 3609 Goodhope is still for sale:
On the opposite side, a vacant-looking house has been spray-painted with a big yellow check mark. Is it coming down?
