House-A-Day: White Behemoth

white behemoth

This house is a couple of blocks over, a grand white behemoth (of uncharacteristic stone-ish blocks in a neighborhood dominated by wood) that stood untouched until just two months ago. Since then, they've gutted and resurrected on a mammoth scale. (Really, they hauled out an amazing amount of stuff: soggy homework, Mardi Gras costumes, bolts of fabric, old albums...)

It's a massive project*—a massive amount of money—and I wonder, even with insurance payouts, who has the resources for such a huge undertaking in such a relatively humble stretch of neighborhood.

* It was in a sorry state even before the storm.
