715 Kenyon Street Being Converted to Apartments

715 Kenyon Street, NW, is in the midst of a major renovation. If you aren’t familiar with the area, it is located on the north side of Kenyon just to the west of Georgia Avenue. According to the permit I was able to find, it is being converted from a single family house into six apartments.  I noticed that the original wood frame structure had German lap siding. When finished, the new  structure will have little resemblance to the original house. Below are some photos I took over the weekend.

From the alley, the east side of the building shows what appears to be a courtyard.

The view from the alley, north of the property, gives a good indication of the scale of the project.

    So is that stone “German lap” siding? It looks like formstone.

    Although it might have been listed as a single family home with the city, it sure never looked like one.It has always been an ugly sucker. Assuming we don’t get all siding, which is a big assumption, this could be an improvement….
