The neighborhood

I’ve been walking my dad’s dog a lot the past few days. At least most of the snow is gone. This gives me a chance to look around his neighborhood.

I’m not a fan of most of the architecture.

He lives in a ritzier part of town, and his little subdivision is small. Lots of cul de sacs. Backs up to woods.

But you can tell everyone sort of put up McMansions. Some better than others. I snapped some quick pics on the walk yesterday.

Most homes look like a variant on this one above. Blocky, tall pitch roof, combo of siding and brick, columns, arched windows, etc.

This house was worse. I think it was all siding before and then they put stone on the outside. Looks more country French now.

This is up the street from my dad’s place. Corner lot, but further away from the woods. It’s my favorite ugly home in the neighborhood. There is really nothing about it that I like.

And then here’s my dad’s place:

I’m glad that of the houses in his neighborhood, his is prairie school and different from all the others. I like the low roof pitch and hipped roof design. And the clerestory. He also kept some strategic trees on the front of the lot and the back is all wooded.

The back is two stories tall (sits on a hill) and is a lot of glass. It overlooks the woods and a small creek.

    You should see the neighborhood where I’m currently staying. If you ever watched the TV show Weeds who a friend of mine calls a big F-U to Suburbia well the theme song – little boxes on the hillside and they’re all made out of ticky-tack. That describes the homes in this neighborhood – all the same basic plan but granted they’re 3,000 square foot homes.

    Your dad’s is BY FAR the most attractive of the homes pictured. I too like the prairie style.
