New life is ahead for three old homes near Westwood Village.
Instead of being torn down to make way for townhouses or apartments – or big new homes – they will be transformed into three new/almost-new, modestly sized, energy-efficient homes, as part of a program financed by the Washington State Housing Finance Commission.
We visited the site a few days ago, as the owners/builders – Green Canopy Homes – and WSHFC reps met the neighbors to explain the project :
The three neighboring homes in the 8800 block of 24th SW, all built in the 1920s, are dubbed The Triplets, as noted on the floor-plan board shown to neighbors (top photo) during the informal outdoor meeting. Each has been given a name, and still look much like the historic views we found on the county assessor’s website.
