Yes, I'm definitely interested. Glad you got your card back. Did it hurt much?
Nora: nope, no pain. though the genius guy had a bit of a harder time getting it out than he expected.
Yes! I want pics of your neighborhood. The houses, but also the areas you like to hang out in, the interesting parts of town...- Jazz
Those immense houses make one ponder the meaning of life, don't they? Will this one have room for a garden?Glad you got your card back. Was a paperclip used?
Sounds like you're really impressed by those mansions that those folks are going to have to clean, heat, and maintain and that really fit into a homey neighborhood. Living like "Rockafellers" on over-extended credit...funny world.
Jazz: okaypersiflage: I used a paperclip, I have no idea what they used behind closed doors!Blue H Moon: thanks for your visit and for commenting - yeah, really impressed with the higher property taxes they incur for the neighbours, too!
Yes yes, more neighbourhood photos, please - and snarky comments, too, if possible!
I think it's a shame that they couldn't do something with the original bones of the house - maybe add to the back and left or something. I love classic styles. I bet this will be a typical McMansion.
The previous house was what's called a bungalow here, beloved of the elderly. The new house looks like it has all the makings of a monstrosity - but give it time. Many of the comfortable old red brick roses-round-the-door houses we love here in England started off as much-reviled raw red brick horrors standing in a patch of builder's rubble when they were first built.Still sad to watch it emerge in its raw state though!
Me thinks the new home is going to be a monster and not quite fit in. A shame really!! I would love to see the homes in your neighborhood!HugsSueAnn
Pinklea: I'll try to keep the snark...Geewits: I know, with so much land they could have gone in any direction.Rachel: I grew up in a bungalow and find them very efficient.SueAnn: you will likely be surprised... hopefully not disappointed
Cripes. Can't anyone live simply anymore?
SAW: apparently not. sigh.
I'm very prejudiced against these huge monstrosities being built in older neighbourhoods. They should stay in their own subdivisions, in my not-so-humble opinion.
Glad you stopped by. For anyone who stumbled here, don't be shy to say 'hi' and let me know you've visited!
