Robert and Betty Howe purchased their home at 2206 College Ave. in 2005. The house resembles model #165 from the 1908 Sears house catalog, the year it was built, with transitional Craftsman features, including an off-center covered porch that was hosting several napping cats during of our visit – none of them belonging to the Howe’s. At the time the Howe’s bought it, the home had been unoccupied since 2000. They undertook ambitious renovations to the structure, including an attic conversion to add bedrooms on the second floor.
