After months of mental ping pong on whether I should buy or walk away from and meetings with countless subcontractors to develop a restoration budget I finally decided to pull the trigger and purchase 3061 and 3063 Henshaw Avenue located in the Camp Washington area of the City of Cincinnati. I got both parcels for a whopping $10,000.
Pictured with me is Joe Gorman, Executive Director of the Camp Washington Community Board. Since 1975 the board has been saving, rehabbing, and selling single-family houses in Camp. My house had been abused, foreclosed on, and abandoned for the last four years; it’s in rough shape. BUT! from the first moment Joe let me tour the inside I had a vision of what the house could be. I hope you’ll enjoy following me on my journey to restore this beautiful 1924 Cape Cod.
