If the elderly owner doesn't want to leave, what could be a good solution to connect his house over the roadway to the other areas?
What are the solutions to an "island"?
There are many islands in real life.
Island countries, Taiwan, Japan, many others.
How do they negotiate the great divide between themselves and the mainland?
If the owner is forced to be isolated - all roads cut off or self-regulated rules to stop easy communication, this is very brutal and no fun for everyone.
I think this house should be kept, and let the owner make it into a nice place.
Have the government help them, and make it into a first government garden in the city type of home.
I think of how to make a retractable bridge that crosses over like a giant footing... or some other well designed foot bridge thats like a double gateway.
There are lots of bridges with buildings on the bridges everywhere.
This is a case of the building first, and bridge later.
No lost for everybody. Win Win. The roads people might lose a bit of income, but will gain good publicity for their inventiveness and kindness to the weak.
Make it into a landmark fun place.
Or useful place, with trees and vegetables etc.
Start w flower pots.
Supporters should bring a pot of flower to the elderly couple.
Start cleaning up walls, just remove the debris, no need to restore entirely for now.
Just clean up, put flower pots on terrace.
Everybody brings a pot of flower - could be vegetable flowers - plants you could eat.
Connect water, electricity.
Soon, the whole island-house becomes a living house with terrace gardens.
