Just stumbled upon the site, One Home Per Lot, which does an excellent job chronicling new housing construction around Seattle and the contortions that developers go to in order to squeeze a home into a space it probably shouldn’t belong.
Of course I’m torn. I’m very pro-development. And I’m lazy. I don’t want a yard to mow. But I do agree, it looks terrible. However, the market is voting. People are selling their lots and people are buying em. And frankly, in many turn around neighborhoods, I’d take a new construction home over what was there any day.
