  • Shame to see the Norfolk house go in 20 years there will no historic homes left something need to be done to save these houses now.

  • Eh, call me crazy but based on that picture I think that house may have had some slight structural problems. Hard to know for sure, but those are some pretty concerning scars there.

  • MrEction: Yup, and I have an apt building that has similar ‘scars’. The city came and red tagged me and said I have to get a $$ engineer out to certify the building was okay. Cost about $2k, they wrote a super simple “Looks good” and the city said “okay”.
    Took a sold day or two of dealing with the city, plus all their fees, plus the $2k, all because I had a crack like that in an 80 year old vintage building.
    If I was a low income home owner facing that, with people trying to buy my house to demo, I’d say “take it” and move.
    People wonder why stuff gets knocked down. It’s not because of ‘evil developers’ all the time
