"How can I remodel my HRA house and still keep the integrity of the original design?" It's a question that's been asked rather often in the Acres. And now there's an answer. Over the past two years, a talented group of architects, designers, and neighbors has gathered resources and recommendations to guide home-owners in an HRA renovation. The result is Remodeling Your Holmes Run Acres House: Remaining Faithful to the Original Design, a 39-page booklet that begins at the beginning in 1950 and ends with putting on your final coat of paint. Don't even think about renovating your house until you've read this.
