The Ohio History Fund is a generous sponsor of the CUDC’s soon-to-be released publication, New Life for Old Homes. This guide contains ideas and advice for rehabbing vacant and abandoned housing that might otherwise be demolished. It includes recommendations and lessons-learned from Kent State University’s first design re/Build project—a beautiful reclaimed home at 1045 E. 67th Street in Cleveland’s St, Clair Superior neighborhood. The renovations to the design re/Build house were designed and implemented by undergraduate students from the KSU’s College of Architecture and Environmental Design, with the help of dozens of community volunteers. We’re currently completing the final punch list and the house is available for sale. Contact us at cudc[at]kent.edu if you’re interested in this very special property.

And look for the release of New Life for Old Homes later this spring.
