House Rennovation Project
This website was created to share some of the renovation aspects of the
historic home on Lake Avenue by the Parkview Hospital.
My name is Andrew Sporner. I grew up and spent most of my life in the
Plymouth area. My first recollections of the place was when I was five
years old coming back from visits to my grandfather's farm, which is now
Carriage Hills Estates.
I had always thought it would be cool to own the place and I had asked
from time to time up until the time I left in 1990 for "bigger and better
things". It was on a visit in 2007 that I was asked by my cousin, "What
would it take to get you to move back here." Well considering I had just
opened a consulting business that was doing very well in Germany, I wasn't
yet ready. I searched quickly for a diplomatic way to just say, "not yet"
(other words were in my mind at the moment). It just fell on me say,
"When I could buy that old Mansion by the Hospital". She smiled and said
"It *IS* for sale. It was a moment where I realized I was, shall we say,
"BUSTED". It did make for a compelling argument, and after some
negotiations did in fact purchase the place.
