Sometimes Paint Alone Can
Serve as the 'Miracle' Solution

This is the second cottage from the southeast corner of Ames and Genesee Avenue. (The first cottage is pictured right behind it and to the left. To the second cottage's right is an empty lot.) This second cottage is significant because it is one of the few remaining original cottages on Ames and one in which has maintained much of its original Victorian flavor. The cottage appears in fairly good shape and could probably appear to be in great shape with just a little paint and the replacement of one upper railing picket. Do we need to mention the removal of the junk that leans up against the downstairs porch (see picture below)?

Pictured above on the left is the left side (east) of the first cottage on Ames. This paint-needy sight is clearly visible when driving west on Genesee Ave. The picture on the right shows the first two cottages on Ames with Burt Park on the left. The Ellis Painter Bucket Truck is parked in the empty lot while preparing to paint the Hoffman cottage to the right of the empty lot.
