Another fabulous historic home in Detroit's Brush Park restored to its former glory! The Ransom Gillis House was designed by Henry T. Brush and George D. Mason and built between 1876 and 1878 at a cost of $12,000. Unoccupied since the mid-1960s, attempts were made to restore the structure in the 1970s, 1980s, and mid-2000s, but none succeeded. It wasn't until HGTV, Nicole Curtis (Rehab Addict) and Detriot-based Quicken Loans successfully restored the once grand mansion. The project aired in an eight-part special on HGTV.My friend's comment: "If there is a hole in the roof, or even if there is no roof--FIX IT--don't just demolish it!"
Needless to say, Gossips shares that sentiment.
