Old Book House: The conclusion

Written February 17th, 2017 by Hasso Hering

Since last you read about the “Old-Book House,” there’s been progress on this reconstruction project at 1405 Front Ave. N.E.  Among other things, as you can see, the old side wing has been scrapped and replaced with a new concrete foundation and slab and the beginnings of the framing of the new garage.
