Bless (?) converted the porch off the kitchen to a heated room.  2nd garage and family room were added before the Klingers.   Klingers replaced the old metal framed windows with Pella windows throughout (except in the family room and one window in the kitchen which they replaced with a greenhouse window).  The dining room window was replaced with Pella sliding doors and 2 long windows, basically making a wall of windows.  They also added a deck across 2/3 the length of the house and did extensive landscaping, changing the front concrete walkway to a curved Colorado slate walkway sided with low sandstone walls.  They removed some of the front yews and  replaced them with holly, added evergreens and planted 2 maples and a river birch and  3 redbuds in the back yard.     2002 - permit for Epic to demolish 3 bedroom home.

Story 1: According to a 3/27 newspaper article in Stan Miller's 1965 Scrapbook, this house was empty for a long time before the Bless family bought it.  The article says the home was owned at the time by Halsey Bechtel at 827 Douglas (or was it the Bank for which Halsey worked?) On one of his regular checks of the vacant house, he found Herbert T. Jackson dead in his car in the garage of 815 Douglas.  Mr. Jackson was a Mariemont real estate executive, vice president of Robert A. Cline Residential Inc., for whom he had shown the house previously to prospective buyers.   The house was listed with Cline.  Jackson apparently died of carbon monoxide fumes.
