The photographs in this book, documents the renovation of the Holy Family Orphans Home into The Grandview Apartments. The project took over two years to complete. This is the second photography book we completed on the orphanage. The first documents the building prior to the renovation. Together they show whats possible with the support and hard work of caring people and organizations.


This book is designed to inspire and demonstrate what’s possible when a group of people are committed to a single cause.  In this case, the restoration of a 120 year old orphanage.  The Holy Family Orphans home was vacant for over 40 years and in a complete state of deterioration.  It was dying.  (See the book The Holy Family Orphans Home – Abandoned)  With the vision and hard work of this group, the building has been restored.  This book is a photographic essay of the process and restoration of the building which is now Grandview Apartments.
