As I was looking at the various houses set in quiet areas around the world, out of the way and devoted of ANY nearby neighbors…
It got to me.
Why aren’t all of the new houses that are being built right now take on some different design instead of some copy and paste job of some “Californian house” (random house type, please ignore) ?
Are we too lazy to sketch out a house of a different shape?
Are we too lazy to limp through the bureaucracy that is the municipal government?
Or are we too poor to get the design pass the numerous design studies by engineers?
Or are we just lazy enough to not even bother picking a design and just let the contractor choose the house design because that one design is going to take the least amount time to get approved just so the contractor could finish the job faster and move on to the next?
Takes a deep breath.
So why are we stuck with neighborhoods being replaced by houses taking most of the space that could be used for some tree-based greenery?
At least it would allow for some instant shade so we can take some of what we do indoors outside.
While we’re on the space issue, why are the newer townhouses have to be squished into lots with the bare minimum width for the common driveway? Cause there is no way a fire truck can maneuver in that small amount of space.
…and now I’m off topic. So I’ll stop for now.
