Almost Done

Work is nearing completion on this house in the 900 block of Walnut Street, which has been undergoing renovation for several years now. You can see what the house looked like before it was renovated in this post from March 2011.

Being Repaired

This house near the corner of Ash and 10th Streets changed hands last year and is undergoing some repairs. Unfortunately the person who was hired to rebuild the porch failed to get a building permit so the city halted work on it.

New Art Center

Part of the old fire station downtown is being converted into a new art center for Georgetown.

Future Events Center?

A couple has purchased this old transmission repair building on Myrtle Street and hopes to convert it into an event center. HARC has already approved their design plans, and now they just need to get a special use permit from the Planning and Zoning Commission and the City Council. The Planning and Zoning Commission is scheduled to hold a hearing on the permit application March 5.

Ready for Remodeling

HARC has approved some modifications to this house, which is located in the 1400 block of Ash Street. Southwestern University President Jake B. Schrum and his wife, Jane, purchased the house last year and are remodeling it to live in after they leave Southwestern at the end of June. It is appropriate that some people who are connected with Southwestern purchased this house, since its first owner was a professor at Southwestern. The Schrums are planning to expand the kitchen, add a master bedroom and add a garage onto the house.
