Talk about mak­ing a silk purse out of a sow’s ear. In a cou­ple of weeks, a 700-square-foot, circa 1940s bun­ga­low in Al­ta­dore will be de­mol­ished and re­placed by a con­tem­po­rary, side-by-side du­plex.

Each side will have triple the square footage of the orig­i­nal — and of­fer a world of dif­fer­ence in de­sign and looks.

The me­ta­mor­pho­sis will be un­der­taken by Nuvo Ur­ban Home­craft, a divi­sion of 20-year-old Chan­nel De­vel­op­ment Corp.

Pres­i­dent Martin Kathrens says the whole idea be­hind the new brand was two-fold — to cel­e­brate the 20th an­niver­sary of the orig­i­nal ren­o­va­tion de­sign and con­struc­tion busi­ness, and to main­tain a strong pro­file in the wake of the eco­nomic down­turn.
