The garage located at 8115 SE Yamhill Street was demolished this week. A recent splitting of the lot into two parcels necessitated the removal of the structure. The garage straddled the new property-line, with the majority of the structure on the new property. A sale is pending on the now vacant lot to the west of the home.
Attached to the house by a breezeway, which was also removed, the garage was a substantial structure. However, demo permit 20-188105 noted that no plumbing fixtures were in the razed building. The house at this address has undergone renovations post its recent sale.
Glacier Properties bought the home in July of this year. Since that time, Crews have painted the building and removed an old oil tank. Other interior upgrades are suspected based on tradesperson vehicles seen onsite.
The home was built in 1917 and likely modified over the years. The recent updates to the home appear mostly cosmetic. This property will likely be listed for sale soon, with the development of the vacant lot next door starting in the coming months.
