Phoenix couple save early 20th century home

Phoenix residents, Laurie and Tom Carmody, care about a vibrant and active downtown Phoenix. They've been involved in real estate for many years, most recently in Phoenix's Arts District along E. Roosevelt.

Another labor of love is preserving and moving 11 E. Ashland, an early 20th century home that had been slated for demolition (for a parking lot and possible future development). Financing the project themselves, Laurie (pictured above with movers) and Tom hope to begin the actual move the first week of March. To celebrate the event, the couple will hold one of their famous soirees and then later in the evening, when traffic is nill, the slow, arduous move will take place.
