A year ago, Black Wide-Awake featured the abandoned endway house at the corner of South Pender and Hines Streets.
September 2020 finds the hundred-year-old house under complete renovation.
The interior has been gutted to the studs, but the house will essentially retain its original floor plan — an entry door opening directly into a front room, then a middle room, then at rear a kitchen and bath. (The bathroom was originally a back porch and would have been enclosed in the 1950s or ’60s.)
The house was once heated by an oil stove that vented through a chimney.
The house sits on new concrete block pillars, but a skirt of some sort will likely be added to enclose the crawlspace.
