Re: sidewalks and parking issues. Your house, and its veiw.

Lots of talk of homes lately. It got me curious. What's your abode look like? What is the view out your front door?

House was built in 1850 something. Its got the creaks to prove it too. Thankfully, all the windows have been updated, making it at least comfortable.

Nice!

Mine's generic suburban, built in '67 and characteristic of the butt-ugly architectural style of the time. Although I'm getting new sidewalks.

Sweet!

I love showing off my house. I don't have any pics here of my view but I do have a great one of the Bridger Mountain Range out of my upstairs window. These shots are a bit older, there's been some more landscaping since I took them. Sorry about the size, I didn't realize the photo was that big.

dir-t, that place is sweet! New home, but with classic touches. The size looks nice too. I'm a big fan of the new urbanist style developments [no surprise though, since I do have a masters in urban planning].

I don't happen to have pictures of the whole house or out the front door, so this is as close as I can get. Built 1863.

I thought my house was old, being built in 1925. Brick bungalow in a really cool neighborhood with most houses built right around that time, but several older (1860's even) too.

Bah, we bought a townhouse (we’ve learned our lesson this time), so it looks sort of ugly from the outside, and the view out the front door is sorta ugly as well.:(

My house is a 1974 vintage. Disco Stu would be proud of it.

No solar features. It's shaped funny because it's been added to a bunch of times - look at one of the rooflines and you can actually see a thin strip of white, where the continuity is disrupted, because they basically raised the roof up.

The house has been added onto 4 times over 20 or so years, it was initially ridiculously small, like 300 square feet maybe. We got it for the backyard, since we have lots of dogs - down to 4 at the moment but usually between 5 and 8.

Here's the backyard.

Thats what made me think there was some kind of panel up there. I like the back deck. How far can you see on a clear day?

Thanks! connecting part between the two decks (the part that makes it freaking expansive) is new - up till a few months ago, there were woodchips there, but it was always a muddy mess, courtesy of the dogs, so the parents decided to put in more wood.

On a good day, I can see the little private airport about 3 miles away... But beyond that there aren't really many landmarks. The weather usually says it's visible for 5-6 miles IIRC.

It's completely flat - I've done 60 mile rides with literally 50 feet of vertical.
