Back to the Drafting Board – 2018

I arrived at this location with one warning, “watch your step as you enter the home”, I was expecting to see a hole in the floor as is common in these types of places.  As I approached the door I was greeted by my friend to a fit of laughter and he said “watch out, don’t step on it”, I looked down to see a dead opossum right where my next footstep would have been.  It had died not too long ago and it smelled awful, it was a sign of the types of conditions that were waiting inside this recently abandoned home.  This is probably the most disgusting abandoned house that I have ever been inside.  Extensive black mold throughout the entire house and rodents running around everywhere (some dead and some were alive), as well as rotten food (including meat) throughout the kitchen.

This houses’ fate has already been sealed as it is owned by a developer and will likely be replaced by an architecturally uninspiring and bland move in ready home.

This house was truly untouched, many possessions left behind including this drafting table complete with the final piece of artwork the owner was never able to finish.

Burlington, IA Historical Building Fire

Burlington, IA Historical Building Fire

“Authorities say two firefighters were injured battling a blaze that left a two-building complex partially collapsed in downtown Burlington.The fire was reported a little before 11 p.m. Saturday. Fire departments and emergency medical teams from three southeast Iowa counties and all off-duty Burlington firefighters eventually responded to the city’s calls for help. Aerial trucks shot water down from above, while ground crews attacked flames from various angles.

Burlington Fire Chief Matt Trexel says the two firefighters were taken to a hospital. One was treated for a back injury and one for smoke inhalation. Trexel says both returned to the fire scene.The fire cause is being investigated. Developer Doug Wells had been redeveloping the complex to hold ground-floor businesses and upper-floor apartments.“

Southern Ontario is going through a major transitioning phase, properties are being bought up to be redeveloped into higher density housing to accommodate the massive influx of people to the area.  The towns and cities have outgrown their boundaries and there is only one other direction to go and that is up.  Condominiums are on the rise, some are small low-rise buildings, rows of town houses, sometimes as many as a dozen homes all connected side by side.  Others rise upwards towards the sky covered in glass with the average price costing over $550,000, that’s more than the average household income can afford.  What makes Southern Ontario so great, that everyone wants to move here?  Any ideas? Put your answers below in the comments.

This kitchen was part of a low income rental housing complex slated for demolition for you guessed it….more shiny condos.

Methodist to Madness – 2018

Methodist to Madness – 2018

A rare find in this province indeed, a truly forgotten Methodist church found somewhere along the backroads of Ontario, Canada.

It really is amazing how quickly this church is falling apart, just six years ago this church was pretty much pristine as it was when the final service had taken place.  Due to the deterioration of the roof, the floor has buckled and become soft and spongy, the ceiling has begun to collapse and the black mold growing quickly, sadly this building does not have a lot of time left.
