This old house
Louisville has several tree-lined neighborhoods packed with ginormous old houses. So, knowing how much I love them, Marco took me on a little driving/walking tour of a couple areas around town.
Some of them have been beautifully restored, while others in shadier parts of town that have been converted into apartments for college students or sold very cheaply to brave do-it-yourself folks for around $250K.
Most of the converted apartments look nice and stay within the style while others, as you can imagine, are patched together cheaply by whoever lives in them month to month...which is always sad.
I really need to win the lotto soon.
There are a couple of those "sad" homes that I would like to make very happy again.
