Isn't it fun to watch houses being built or repaired? Watching our neighbors mess with their homes is highly entertaining. If you're lucky enough to live in a neighborhood that's in development, you don't even need a TV. Just go nose around in your neighbors' building sites.
Here's a house near us that's getting a redo:
Hurricane Irene did a doozy on this poor home. I love the red roof and shutters. It's a fabulous location on the water, with lots of space. A showcase house, you might say. A house everyone notices, and wonders, "Ooooo! Who lives there?"
What in the world? (Don't you love figuring out what craziness your neighbors' are up to, with their houses?)
Are they adding bedrooms? Turning it into a B&B? Setting up an observatory? If this house previously had a big "HIT ME" sign on it during hurricane season, two more floors up there will only make it worse.
I can't wait to see what develops. Even Town Dock, our local nosy online reporter, hasn't muttered a whisper about the house. I'll let you know when I find out!
