DALLAS - Brittany Bailey and her husband are building a new home in Belmont, the bastion of historic preservation in east Dallas.
"We designed a beautiful prairie style home," said Bailey.
However, there are no plans yet for a house warming. Instead the couple is going door to door trying to thaw a rather chilly reception to their arrival in the neighborhood.
"We are not trying to make war in the neighborhood," Bailey said. "We actually plan to live here and raise a family here."
Bailey is circulating a petition to get neighborhood support for her home blueprint.
