Unusual Concrete Blocks Used In Construction Of 2011 Washtenaw Ave. Home, August 1947

Unusual Concrete Blocks Used In Construction Of 2011 Washtenaw Ave. Home, August 1947 image
Published In
Ann Arbor News, August 30, 1947
Caption
Tapered shapes of the unusual concrete blocks that are being used in construction of this house at 2011 Washtenaw Ave. provide an exterior that looks like frame siding. The blocks are wider at the bottom than at the top and this difference in size creates the appearance of conventional siding when the blocks are placed atop each other. Cylindrical air spaces in the blocks provide an insulation space that supplements the insulation within the interior walls. The wooden pegs shown between the uppermost blocks are used to separate blocks until mortar has been injected between them with a special type of propellant.

RAIN AND MORE RAIN: For the third straight day the skies opened over Ann Arbor yesterday afternoon and a torrential rain fell. The fall of 1.47 inches in a comparatively brief time flooded streets and many basements. The youth perched on a car hood is riding there so he can leap to high ground. That spare pair of shoes could come in handy if he misses. S. Thayer St., where the picture was taken, was flooded almost to the top of the curb.

VILLAGE MODELS READIED: These two model homes, the first visible step in a planned $150,000,000 redevelopment of Willow Village with private housing, are now nearing completion on Blossom St., just east and north of occupied portions of the Village. These houses, to cost in the area of $11,000 for the frame (left) and $12,000 for the brick, are the first of 61 planned in the lower-priced Washtenaw Orchards Subdivision No. 1. Construction of homes there and elsewhere will begin after the sales models have been completed and opened, spokesmen for the Willow Woods Development Co. of Detroit said. Private redevelopment of the wartime "Bomber City" began after Ypsilanti township purchased the village in November, 1954. No completion date has been set, although the existing Village structures are scheduled, by law, to be razed by July 1, 1958.
