Ugly Everything

August 16th, 2010 · 9 Comments

We’re trying to find something nice to say about this house.

They saved money by not paying for a building permit for the room addition?  The back door is eco-friendly?  They recycle?  The electric panel is accessible?

They save time & energy by not having landscaping?  They didn’t waste money on a concrete driveway?  It’s a big lot?

boring curb appeal no driveway or landscaping Phoenix Arizona home house

The refrigerator is included with the sale?  The house has gas service?  The gas line serves as a cup holder?

The cabinets look new?  There’s a window above the sink?  Nice.

    Yeah, the front of that house looks like a forlorn cartoon face.

    hmm, I wonder if those cabinents were in a foreclosure home that got stripped before they were in this house.

    This house is definately a teardown..it has a nice sized lot, but it’s difficult to tell what kind of neighborhood it’s located in

    Why are there bars on the windows? Afraid someone will take the refrigerator or cup holder?

    Well, compared to some of the horrors elsewhere on this entertaining blog this place (”Bleak House”?) is a masterpiece of understated minimalism, or as architects say, “noble simplicity”. A case of “Less is less”, rather than “Less is more”, more or less. What you see in this humble abode is what you get; Jean Paul Sartre would have loved this stark architectural expression of existential despair. A basic shelter utterly without pretense; and one of the few places I could say could use some. . . As real estate agents would say, “Has potential. . . great fixer-upper.”
