The Romain House will get a makeover thanks to HGTV. As we reported back in February, the Romain House was in the running for a makeover. Viewers could vote for the home of their choice and Philadelphia (Frankford) and St. Louis came out on top. So when the makeover is complete we’ll post a before and after picture for everyone to see. I expect most of the improvements will be on the inside for the comfort and safety of the residents.
Thanks to Shirley for the tip.
Update on March 31st from foxbusiness.com:
…the three- bedroom facility located on Romain Street in the historic Frankford District, provides veterans with food, shelter and employment assistance after concluding military service. The 70-year old home will receive a kitchen remodel and new appliances, insulation, windows and renovations to a bathroom that will improve accessibility for disabled veterans….the makeovers also will be featured in an HGTV special in October 2009.
