As originally reported here on The Hoop and Holler a vacant lot in the 400 block of 8th Street N.W. appeared suddenly where a house once stood. Well in the spirit of following up on this story we have discovered that aliens may not have taken the house as originally thought. A much more human explanation seems to have emerged as a foundation has been laid and then covered with hoarding to protect the new cement from the cold. It has become obvious this is yet another example of how new houses are popping up in the North End and around town in previously empty lots or where old derelict properties once stood. A new house will soon stand in the gap. Hats off to the builder of this as its sure to be a welcome addition to the neighborhood.
