Hiding Behind a Facade
The caption of this photo says, “NOT A MOVIE SET! I have been so fascinated by this house for years and they finally took down the facade THE DAY AFTER I GOT A GOOD PICTURE! Had to share!” Wow, this is truly crazy. It’s like they wanted a new house without actually paying for the full construction price. But what do their friends and family think when they come over to visit? One of the top comments said, “Not sure where this is but in DC lots of developers do this. If you tear down an entire building, it’s a new development. If you tear down everything except the facade and a foot of wall on either side it’s a “renovation” and taxed way lower.” You learn something new every day.
