I grew up in this house and it has fallen into disrepair. My father passed away in January 2008 and the family is struggling to figure out a solution that works for all. One brother wants to "tear it down" because the land underneath is worth alot. The costs of renovation is quite high. I have decided to hold firm and not agree to any plan that would endanger the house....Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I have set up a website , novice that I am, to publicize the plight of this home. The houses in the development next door are indeed beautiful, but this house is like an old dignified lady...and there is beauty in that too.
