So true.Seems no one has a front porch big enough for the entire family to sit out on and enjoy the nice weather. I grew up in a house that had not only a wide front porch but it wrapped around on side of the house as well. Few new homes built provide a front porch and a large back yard for the kids to play. I see many expensive homes like lawyers or doctors would own in my area that have no back yards and very small front yards. Sad.
That's what happened to so many of the old double, triple, and quadruple lots that I remember as a young child. Homes right beside one another now, no yards, no privacy, no traditional, classic looks. Not even sad, just downright disheartening and even maddening, because it's been done by greedy homeowners.It seems that if there is the least bit of space, someone will build something on it. Sad.
yep that's what happens here, and with such limited space and homes crammed in everywhere cheek by jowl..it makes no sense to keep accepting immigrants, when we don't have anywhere to house them nor the infrastructure to provide for them..it's nuts!It seems that if there is the least bit of space, someone will build something on it. Sad.
Looks familiar a Pleasant Street Assistant living type where I am .....not living.
It's about fifteen feet above the water level. The foundations are four, reinforced concrete stilts, each set into a concrete foundation of their own. The biggest risk is not so much flooding, as erosion. A dramatic flood probably wouldn't reach the floor level of the house because on the opposite river bank are vast open spaces that are used for recreation, but double up as flood plains when the river rises.That’s beautiful horseless. You are close to the river. Does it ever give you flood problems?
it's lovely... but it's supposed to be a picture of YOUr front door......We needed a few provisions this morning, coming back from the store I saw the sunlight on the River Avon.
There are nine rivers which go by the name of Avon situated within Great Britain. The name Avon, comes from the Brythonic language and stems from the word for river, which is abona. Our Avon is referred to as the Hampshire Avon.
This view is not exactly our front door, but does it matter?
