Remember that backwards house I talked about last fall? Here's an updated view of the dark-side bay windows.
Across the street from this sadly ill-placed recycled house, there is a brand new one with a fair-sized window facing south. It even has a good long overhang on that window, to keep it cooler when the summer sun is high.
Even so, it still has a lot of glass facing north. Sigh.
Now here's a new Arcola house with some serious southern exposure! I am truly impressed. Although I have to ask, why so little overhang on the upper level windows?
And why so much house? If I'm not mistaken, there will be a grand total of two people living in it.
I wonder how many people used to live in this one?
