That's the worst bit: people who move here and cut down all the trees. If you don't like trees, why in the name of Odin did you move here???


Yes! And then why did you move out into the forest?

The short answer is “yes”.

Google “McMansion interiors” for examples.

Relax, discover how much fun it is to laugh at other peoples houses. Being judgemental can be lots of fun.

The mother of a friend liked to say that she was going to put a sign in her front yard, to wit: I DON'T LIKE YOUR HOUSE EITHER.

Much of the Denver area is a mass of houses that appear to have been built with kits of blocks.
Ad a block for this plus a block for that and stack them.
One redeeming feature of Tucson is that there are some attractive houses.

Ugh! In that case, let's eminent domain their lots and see if we can make them happier. Evil

I love this site. She did a 50 states series, someone sued her for using a picture and 'lowering their property value', and then there's the everlastingly lovely term 'lawyer foyer'.

That room wouldn't look nearly as bad if they took away the hideous and menacing tables. They look like they could come alive at any minute.

I do like the color on the walls, and I don't mind the black curtains. It's those tables!

I missed it the first time, but the funniest thing about the picture of the red room is the picture over the sofa labeled "an art". Big Grin
