Proper measures can be taken to secure the perimeter and entry points of vacant homes. This not only prevents deterioration of the property but also protects against vandalism and fire damage due to trespassing. Fortunately, there are some great heart pine floor joists underneath this disaster that can up upcycled into the rebuild.  #burned #multiplex #renovation #reno #hgtv #firedamage #framing #beams #heartpine #unfortunate #newbuild #newconstruction #rebuild #vacant #blighted #removeblight
Securing a vacant home (temporarily)  is one of the primary methods of fire, crime, and weather damage prevention.  In the long run, the home needs be reused or renovated.  Prior to the installation, hazard potential and remedy must be identified. In this case, the sheets are cut to fit to protect the trim and shutters against theft. * The HUD board up procedure uses plywood covers for window and door openings that are held in place using carriage bolts and 2 x 4 braces on the interior. #boardup #preservation #historicpreservation #preservationmatters #neworleans #preservation #shotgun #secure #prevent #fireprevention #crimeprevention #hud #hubboardup #homedepot #preserved #historic #lapboard #ventcap
Named after boat maker, Andrew Higgins, the Higgins Hotel and a Conference Center is currently under construction in the warehouse district of the downtown New Orleans. Higgins Industries, maker of the “Higgins Boat” (LCPVs), grew to be one of the U.S’s largest boat manufacturers and at its height employed over 80,000 and had hundreds of millions in government contracts. Over 23,000 of these boats were produced during WWII.

Given New Orleans prime location along the banks of the Mississippi, the city has historically been built on alluvial deposits.  Furthermore, prior to the migration of Europeans, New Orleans was limited to local building materials such as sand, clay, oyster shells and wood (pine and cypress). The wood into framing, the clay into bricks, and the crushed and burned oyster shells into lime mortar/ limewash. Pictured: crushed oyster cinder block of warehouse on Tchoupitoulas.  #history #lime #limemortar #limewash #clay #bricks #preservation #tchoupshop #mortar #masonry #mason #neworleans #cinderblock #tchoupitoulas #nola #brickwork #craftsmanship

The ALP, (Acme, Lull & Porter hinge) produced by the John Wright Company. The original Wrightsville Hardware company was founded in 1880. Cast in iron, the ALP uses gravity and an interlocking mechanism for efficiency and durability.

Daily dose of blight:  the vernacular typography of the shotgun house traces back to the 1809 Haitian migrant exodus from St. Domingue in the Caribbean.  It is hypothesized the origin of the shotgun home is African and  was greatly spread over the American South in the early 19th century. It wasn’t until the 1960s that preservationists and historians alike in New Orleans began to accept the Shotgun as a recognized and architecturally significant detail of the city scape! "The shotgun house of Port-au-Prince became, quite directly, the shotgun house of New Orleans."- John Michael Vlach- #nolablight #blightstat #blight #blighted #rotten #termites #waterdamage #siding #framing #overgrown #weeds #catsclaw #nolareno #nola #renovation #preserve #develop #preservation #preservationmatters #thisplacematters #prc #shotgun #double
Modeled after a renaissance palazzo, the Cotton Exchange building located at 231 Carondelet was built in 1871, one year after the New York Cotton exchange opened.  The construction was financed by a organized group of cotton factors (brokers). The commission established a method of categorizing the quality of cotton and providing a solid platform between sellers and buyers.  The exchange closed in 1964.  Today, it is a hotel.  Architect: Favrot and Livaudais **At one point, 1/3 of the U.S cotton passed through New Orleans. #cottonexchange #neworleans #cbd #hotel #exchange #neworleanscottonexchange #favrotandlivaudais

Historic neighborhoods are becoming as popular as ever with the movement toward urban living. The garden district has limited space, so many owners have added ancillary buildings or employed other methods of added value per square inch. In this case, it appears as though this single family dwelling will demolished to make to make room for a larger home.  #gardendistrict #neworleans #uptown #demo #demolition #uptgd #streetscape #newbuild #vacant #residential #brick #build
Clean out begins today:: Retaining the special qualities and characters of our city’s street scape is of the utmost importance.  Demolition by neglect is real.

The shotgun style houses we find predominately in New Orleans got their name because one could shoot bird shot  through the front door and out the back without hitting a wall. Many of these traditional homes have various influenced facade styles and many have fallen victim to deferred maintenance. #nolablight #abanoned #blighted #crimestoppers #stopcrime #vacant #catsclaw #duplex #double #babyblue #shotgun #birdshot #nolareno #reno #renovation #vines #preservation #historicpreservation #preserve #develop #preservationmatters #savethisplace
Protecting homes from the elements is absolutely necessary (especially prior to hurricane season). Remember, always practice safety on job sites even if it’s as simple as this. * all window sashes, frames, glass and hardware are to be undamaged by the boarding installation. *bolts and washers are preferred over screws. #propertypreservation #historicpreservation #washers #bolts #wegotscrewed #plywood #historic #duplex #cypress #siding #nolareno #carpenter #sealing #sealed #dryin #renovation #preserve #develop #community #preservation #preservationmatters #thisplacematters #vacant #abandoned #neglected #blighted #preservationsociety #historicpreservation #neworleans
