Jun 24, 2014 — Hi all —

Darya and I are happy to announce that we’ve come to an agreement with a long-time resident of Willamette Heights to sell 1627 NW 32nd Ave. The new buyer’s intention is not to demolish the house, but rather restore and maintain it. While this agreement isn’t fully finalized, we are hoping we can wrap things up quickly.

Over the last few days we’ve watched as comments and emotions flared on both sides of the issue. Some folks arguing for homeowner rights, others for the preservation of old homes. We've read all of this, along with your emails, and took it all to heart.

We decided on Portland not as an investment property or vacation spot, but as a place we hope to one day call home, a place to raise our family. We love so much about your beautiful city, and your strong community bond is high up on that list. While we could have legally put our heads down and proceeded forward, that’s not the type of relationship we want with our neighbors and our new city friends.

Thanks for listening,

Kevin & Darya
