Hillside Residence MARIETTA, GA. ROBERT M. CAIN ARCHITECT It's not an easy decision to tear down your par- ents' house—the one you grew up in—even when it has a Mansard roof, Tennessee crab orchard flooring, and orange shag carpet.

Usually, it's a slow process of coming to terms with the inevitable—a winding trip through the stages of grief. At first, everyone thinks it might be possible to renovate.
