UPDATE: We Did it! Here’s a message from Nicole (Rehab Addict). Demo has been stopped!
DEMOLITION HAS BEEN HALTED:) HIP, HIP HOORAY!!!! HIP, HIP, HOORAY!!!!! THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH FOR ALL YOUR HELP!!! STAY TUNED….(now I can go back to bed:))
It was my extreme pleasure last week to meet Nicole Curtis from Rehab Addict at an open house in Minneapolis last week! We were truly honored to see some of her amazing work in person, and I have to tell you that the passion she has for restoring homes is truly inspiring.
Luckily for you guys, just for Crunchy readers there is an exclusive interview coming up with Nicole so you can learn more about what she is all about.
In the meantime, Nicole needs our help! Nicole is in the business of saving historic homes from demolition. She takes homes others wouldn’t even touch and turns them into amazing homes with great character and personality. She reuses as much as possible in these home and shows you how to do it on her DIY show “Rehab Addict”.
Here’s a letter from Nicole:
The City of Minneapolis has authorized the demolition of the home at 2637 Emerson Ave North—I was told that there would be no demolitions for a few months until some things were put in order with the city. Then a backhoe was delivered to this property. I would gladly take this home and restore it-but have been told no. I have been in the home and compared to the Dollar House-it’s Turnkey. It costs the taxpayers at least 15k to demo a house – North MPLS already has an estimated 450 vacant lots. Please start screaming with me. I do not want to see this house go down.
How can you help?

Even if you don’t live in the Minneapolis area, let’s show Nicole we support the great things she does to restore and preserve history. These houses are built back up to their former glory rather than adding more garbage to the landfill.
Please remember to be respectful when contacting to support Nicole and her great cause!
