Constructive Demolition

Workmen today started removing the second floor porch on the east side of the Michael Heim House on Benton Boulevard. Leslie, the new owner, has planned all along to restore the house to the way it originally looked after construction in the late 1800s. When completed the home should look like it's twin one door north which was constructed for Michael's brother Ferd. The Heim family was owner of the Heim Brewery in the East Bottoms. We'll keep you posted on progress. Ferd Heim house below.

  1. It's so great that Leslie is doing this to her home. She is an inspiration for true preservationists in this neighborhood! Can't wait to see it done. How sad the matching house has fallen into such disrepair. The owner is entertaining all offers!
