Homeowners Update: Cameron and Elizabeth at 1936 Wakefield Avenue

Cameron and Elizabeth moved into 1936 Wakefield Avenue in August 2017 and have since settled into the Brownlee Woods Neighborhood and made a number of improvements to their new home. YNDC worked to revitalize the property last spring and summer, completing the work in July 2017. This is Cameron and Elizabeth’s first homebuying experience. They built a fence in the backyard for their new dog, a pug named Dita, and painted a number of interior rooms. “It was really great buying a house from YNDC that was move-in ready,” said Cameron, “that way any improvements we make can be for things we want instead of things we need.”  Read more.
