Detroit-based literary organization seeks to use vocational training to renovate this vacant home and then award it to a writer.
The house is located on a short street in the neighborhood just north of Hamtramck, down the street from the Powerhouse Project and near the Public Pool and Popps Packing galleries. It is also within blocks of the other 2 houses. We are planning on putting in a hot water heater, replastering the walls, fixing the windows, repairing insulation, installing a kitchen (stove, fridge, cabinets) and painting the rooms.
The work on this house is an education project being done in conjunction with Young Detroit Builders. Students in reconstruction will work alongside a licensed contractor to repair and restore the home, gaining lifetime skills that will make for a stronger Detroit.
