Before and After: 132 Benkard

This home probably would’ve been torn down had it not been for Habitat for Humanity. It was a dirty job to restore 132 Benkard. There was asbestos, and walls were rebuilt right down to the foundation. It’s amazing to see how much was replaced in this house, yet Habitat was able to retain the character of the overall structure. They were able to save the original banister of the stair case. Now, this home has been dedicated to the Salazar family. You can check out tons of nitty gritty photos of the construction on Habitats facebook page in two separate photo albums here and here.
