HOUSTON, WE HAVE TOUCHDOWN!
Indeed we do! The Duncan House is now OFF the steel beams and resting on the piers and foundation that should hold it for another 160 years! So, the height off the ground you see as you drive by is the height it will remain. I think bringing the historic old home back up to its original height greatly improves its looks.
Soon, we will finish the block/brick work and will move on to yet another phase of restoration. It's an adventure, for sure!
Hopefully, we will soon be preparing a pad for the 'outbuilding' to rest on. I have hopes of placing it on its permanent site within the next couple of weeks.
