Repeat rehabbers: sixty and counting

11/10/2014


West Lafayette’s New Chauncey Housing, Inc. (NCHI) reached a milestone with the recent dedication of its 60th home rehabilitation project, a Colonial Revival cottage in the city’s Chauncey-Stadium Avenues Historic District.

 

The group serves a historic residential neighborhood under significant development pressure from Purdue University, where campus expansion and conversion of single-family homes to student rental housing threaten the area’s character. NCHI works to preserve the neighborhood’s historic housing stock and provide opportunities for low- to moderate-income buyers to purchase quality homes.

 

When NCHI bought the cottage at 136 Dehart Street, it was hidden beneath dingy aluminum siding. The group peeled off the aluminum to reveal original wood shingle siding, repaired original wooden windows, rehabbed the interior, and added fresh new paint inside and out – a stunning transformation.

 

With 136 Dehart Street completed, NCHI turns its attention to projects #61 and #62 – a Craftsman-style bungalow and a nineteenth-century farmhouse. To learn more about these projects and others, visit http://newchaunceyhousing.org/.

McDonald House

Vacant for years, Attica's 1855 McDonald House retains beautiful architectural details, but failing masonry poses an escalating threat. The house needs a buyer capable of taking on the restoration before it’s too late.
