Sometimes it hurts a little.

Postby hectoracuna on Tue Jun 06, 2006 10:35 am

This is the reason for a modern lover to buy these Havers. I know a home owner is free to do virtually anything to their home (in this hood), but it hurst a little.

Just a little. :cry:

Why the hell would they square off the sloped front windows and then install sloped windows in the addition?

I'm going to find that home and hang myself from the main beam. That should send them a message.
Tell everyone I loved them!

Why would someone do that? They should be killed.

Hey, hey, easy guys, she's a little ol' lady. I might suggest poking her with a pencil first.

Round up all the ferel cats and give them to her. But she may be the source of your ferel cat problem.
Mmmmmmm. Yep that's it she's cloning them and releasing them into the neighborhood.

She's a witch, BURN HER!

I drove by that house the other day...kinda surprising. I thought the daughter of the woman who sold across the street lived there and had been in the house for years. Did she sell it? Get tired of living in an amazing house?

I think my car instinctually stepped on the brakes for me when I saw that house the other day...my neck still kinda hurts. :cry:

They won't be doing stucco...the vinyl siding has already been installed. Same deal as the house across the street...not ideal, but not stucco.

I am trying to remain optimistic--there's still hope that they will install windows above the new sliders...when I saw the plywood go up, I crossed my fingers that it was to close the openings while awaiting their special order windows.

Why?

Postby mdeoro on Wed Jun 07, 2006 10:58 am

The reason somebody would do that is probably because they did it years ago to their other Haver - the one fifilynn mentioned, across the street - and that one sold recently for $295K, the highest in the neigborhood yet! The extra square footage brings more money, & not every one appreciates Havers for what they are.

And by the way, it's the other way around on the ownership: the daughter lived across the street in the one that sold, the mother lives in this one. Apparently the mother did not want to move so daughter had to sell & go across the street & now remodel that house. Great pockets doors inside though, all throughout the house!

Yes, once again, modern lovers should buy these Havers. Best deal around.

I hope WEEKSIE is correct, and she may be. Upon close inspection the plywood above the windows is loosly fit and cheap compared to the plywood siding on the addition side. She may be waiting for custom windows to fit above. Perhaps the lower portions will allow her to open them. Keep your fingers crossed that it's not as bad as we're speculating.

John the new owner over on Almeira street has had alot of activity at his place, I'm curious as to the progress. Last we spoke (e-mail) he'd replaced the plumbing. Visually he's removed some of the ragged old vegetation in front.

i live down the street so i have to drive by this damn house every day and when the first slider went in at the bathroom (i was thinking that was the only one going in and i still had a heart attack) i literally slammed on my brakes in front of the house and exclaimed "OH MY GOD!" to the two guys that were standing in front of it. they just looked at me like i was a loon. i came home drenched in sweat, pale and shaking, and brought it up as the topic for discussion at the family meeting. we all went down there with masks, swords, rakes, torches and shovels, but no one was home. i'm really really hoping for the custom windows. if nothing but solid material goes in above those sliders, i'm torching the place (jc, would you like your body to be removed beforehand or would you like to become part of the collective ashes?). it will be better to burn it down than let it live in sin.

anyone read the fountainhead? then you'll know what i'm talking about. it hurts way more than a little. sacrilege. complete sacrilege. sob.

Well, sounds like Weeksie was on target with the windows.

However now that place across the street has gone nuts and did this!!!
