See, Vivian looks right at home! It's a beautiful Spanish style house on a heavily tree-lined street (all the streets are heavily tree-lined fortunately.) It has what I imagine to be beautiful, private courtyards on the side and in back. I rode round back to see what I could see. I'm pretty sure the house is empty but I didn't think it would be a great idea to climb the fence, so I didn't get to look into the back yard. BUT, I did find these in the alley.
Last summer, or the summer before, I remember hearing about a neighborhood alley art contest but we've never ventured around to see what folks created. Here are a couple of funky works.
When I got to the office I looked up the listing and in addition to being a little (HA!) out of my price range, it's under contract. That and it's over 4,000 sq feet and how would I be able to stay up on my small-house-living high horse in a house that big? (I'll try and spare you all from any rants on big houses...maybe.) Still, for the right big house, ya, I'd probably do it. I'd get rid of all my cars, set up more compost heaps, heat with solar, wind and love in order to justify it.
