because I need a 10th post for the month

here is an update on the demolished and rebuilt house. things seem to have been moving slowly, but today I noticed that tools have been picked up.

the back view - 
note the 3-car garage
the front view - note the circular driveway
that goes nowhere near the garage doors

and remember when I did the little tour and showed you some houses you might be interested in buying?and there was this one that had been left sitting in this unfinished state for about 2 or 3 years? 
did one of you buy it?
because now it is gone!
yay another new house. this time, it will be better than what was there, though it is a shame that the other plans stalled. again, this will obviously be way bigger than the original.


  1. Oh, how horrible (last pic) -would go nuts if that happened to me!

  2. Big, bigger, biggest. Obviously three cars is now a basic human need.

  3. I chuckled at the driveway going nowhere. Hope you are well. I am having a giveaway. please drop by if you are interested. Can not believe it is September already. hugs.

  4. Building to attract wealthier buyers doesn't always work. Sad to see this happen to a neighbourhood.

  5. Aren't houses always bigger than the ones they replace?? Seems a shame to cram them in so much. We suffer from that over here too.

    Have a good weekend!

  6. it's interesting to watch a construction project evolve. Because of time and monetary constraints, our own house is evolving Verrry Sloooowly. I have learned to appreciate any tiny bit of progress.

  7. There are two fancy tiny cities right in the center of Dallas. People buy a house, raze it and build a giant McMansion. And it's a shame because the original houses have lots of character and are very charming. I guess that happens all over the place. And what's with the driveway being in front and the garage in back? Is there a secret road back there?

  8. In this case, the new build will be better than the less than half built older model.

    the house is on a corner lot, so the garages are actually at the side.


Glad you stopped by. For anyone who stumbled here, don't be shy to say 'hi' and let me know you've visited!
