    I predict the house won't survive another five years in that condition... :-(

    The house actually has replacement windows and is occupied - sorry that I haven't managed to get 'present-day' shots on all of these I posted prior to the Cleveland-Holloway home tour.

    Thanks for the update Gary! I'd visited Google Street view for "present day" conditions and assumed nothing had improved. Will have to check out that street in person soon.

503 Oakwood, 1980

The house sat abandoned over a number of years - it was purchased in 2006, which fortunately saved it from demolition by NIS. Unfortunately, the purchaser thought the best things to do in renovating the house was to rip out the original windows and put in some Home Depot specials.

Fortunately, the house was owner-occupied in the end, so the loss of the windows is certainly outweighed by the fact that the house was saved. I still hope the/an owner will banish the fake muntins by replacing at least the front windows with some true 1 over 1s at some point.
