Our 13 Photos Of An Abandoned Georgian House That Was Renovated And Then Burnt By Lightning

This 170-year-old historic house in Georgia was saved from demolition by a couple who decided to renovate it and make it their dream home. Just four months into renovations, it was struck by lightning and burned to the ground. These photos show the house in its long-abandoned state, during renovation, and after the devastating fire. The loss has been insurmountable, and nothing of the house can be salvaged.

The “Saving The Big Little House” project was being chronicled on their trendy Instagram page.

Please go to their Gofundme to see their story and see how you can help. All photographs by Andrew Wing and me, Bryan Sansivero. Enjoy!
