HGTV star Nicole Curtis halted the demolition of the Rev. William Boutwell house Thursday morning.
Just before 9 a.m., Curtis, the executive producer of HGTV’s show “Rehab Addict,” posted this photo on social media:
Earlier this month, the Pioneer Press reported about an effort to save the Boutwell home that was built in 1870. A few days later, Stillwater Township officials granted a demolition permit for the home.
Because Boutwell’s home was never designated as historically significant, the township said there is nothing they can do to stop it’s demolition, Fox 9 reports. The property, located at sits on nearly 5 acres and it’s on the market for $650,000.
Demolition crews began work Thursday morning, but Curtis was able contact the home’s owner, John Adamic, who halted the demolition.
“THE OWNER IS WONDERFUL & agreed to halt demo today so we could attempt a solution:),” Curtis posted on Facebook. “I run into jerkfaces usually – not the case here … Family stuck between rock and hard place.
“A house is not saved til a house is saved,” Curtis tweeted. “I made a deal for the demo to be halted for a few days to explore options with the owners.”
