Jacked-up house

15th and Dolores.

Seeing stuff like this makes me wonder how houses don’t just fall over all the time.

    Happens quite a bit in my neighborhood down here in Southern California. Mostly people having their foundations redone or basements dug out. It’s pretty crazy to see for sure.

    It warms the cockles of my heart to see someone that cares enough about their old house to actually do this instead of just tearing it down and putting up some horrible monstrosity in its place.

      FWIW, the owners originally planned to demolish this building and replace it with a large condo box, but the city forced them to remodel it instead.

    Actually what’s happening is a developer is building 13 condos in the vacant part of the lot and renovating the building jacked up here. It was the subject of a lot of haggling with the planning commission and some people did think the new proposal was a monstrosity.

    Or maybe they are just “installing” a garage?

    There was a beautiful church next door and I think this house was the rectory. The church burned down. For awhile the vacant lot was a little park with the steeple sitting in the center.

    I can’t wait to pave over all of San Francisco.
