The ugly residence and the inappropriate fountain of doom

I have no concept WTF is wrong with this developer, but he appears to be
on a poor acid trip.
Things this picture does not show:
1. How they butchered the actually pretty tree in their front yard for no apparent cause.
two. The wrought iron fence that would virtually be good, except it’s RUSTY and not installed properly (sweet!).
3. The giant weeds that they left in between our house and theirs in spite of performing a bunch of (rather ugly) front yard landscaping.
4. The giant landscaping rocks that our front yard fence (More than THE PROPERTY LINE) is now supporting.
Me? Possibly a bit pissed off over what they’ve carried out to this perfectly pleasant older home and how Nashville Codes and the Historical Commission and every single city official we (and other neighbors) called fully blew us off. I wish it wasn’t next door, so I didn’t have to appear at it is extreme ugliness every single day.

Well, this is it. Appropriate soon after I took this we put a window in that hole up in the staircase. We hope to begin moving back in early or mid-April. That glass facade is for our master bedroom (blinds coming).
Day 328 – Serious off-roading

Throughout the construction project on the road to Torola, numerous accidents occurred on the steepest section, right just before entering town. 1 truck lost a tire on the way down, and had to drive to the bottom on the rim to get to a spot where they could change the tire. One truck got stuck and cut fuel lines when its front tire went off the edge into the gutter.
But the truck in this photo takes the prize—it went proper off the edge, through the cornfield, and stopped correct just before plowing via a house. The engineer in me, seeking at this very high-priced piece of equipment, quickly determined how they would rescue it. With all the inexpensive labor they had working on the road, I assumed, they’d set up a bucket brigade to unload all the gravel in the back of the truck. Then, they’d employ a tow truck to pull the truck back up the hill, and haul it off. I was positive that the frame and suspension would be shot, but there was nonetheless the engine, which could be pulled and sold for a considerable sum, more than what it would have price to pull the truck out, I’m certain.
But this was not the course of action they chose. Rather, they installed an eight inch high concrete curb and a solidly cemented guard rail across the path the truck had plowed in its descent, forever sealing its destiny as a relic of the construction project.
Scroll your mouse over the photo to see exactly where the truck is–you’ll have to view it huge to really be able to see it.
