This was taken on Thursday and I am willing to bet that the whole roof is on by today. We'll check it out after church. The house next door has opted for the arches which are like another house we've seen in the previous neighborhood.
We are going with the plainer facade. And we are having a picture window on the right, instead of that sad single window.
This closeness is so 'city' and reminds me of my Chicago childhood, where we called the space between houses gangways.
Now looking at the tiny figure on the top of the structure, it makes me realize how much bigger this house is than I first thought. Woo. That box is the equivalent of a telephone pole, housing all sorts of electric and communication lines. Right between the two houses. You can bet I am going to hide it with plants asap.
I have been moving art supplies from the upstairs storeroom into my studio, just to see what it is I have...in hopes of using some of it, sooner than later. I found this watercolor painting, which I have absolutely no memory of making. 20x30". Could have been done in grad school, circa 1995. Quien sabe? I've got it propped up on a larger board, which is visible on the top.
