Colonial Street – Providence House

This set was originally used as the Klopek house from ‘The ‘burbs’ (1989).

At the end of filming it was wrecked, but was refurbished and sat on Colonial Street for a decade before it’s next major use.
It was converted into a house set for ‘Providence’ in 1999, and has remained as such until the present day.

It’s a great example of how a set can be modified to make it look completely different.
