It looks likely that Edgar Tafel’s Carl and Marie Albert House in Wind Point (near Racine), Wisconsin will be saved. Another court hearing is scheduled for Friday afternoon, December 20. I regrettably cannot be there, so I will look for a newspaper update. One of the sticking points in the long dispute was the unsightly temporary covering on the roof. The roof has been redone. The exterior photos were shot this afternoon.
There is still a lot of work to be done inside. Judge John Jude wanted electrical and plumbing work completed by the 20th. Although the electrical work has not been finished, Linden Schulz, one of the owner’s sons, told me today that the village building inspector seemed satisfied with the progress in the house during an inspection yesterday. Schulz is optimistic that the hearing will go well. The two interior photos were shot Saturday.
