Happy Friday! I was thinking we needed to have some fun on the site this week, I thought about having an UGLY HOUSE CONTEST. You know - we've all seen them. The colors that scream out at you while you are still blocks away! The eyesores in the front yard. The lack of curb appeal. I know they are out there in every city - and so do your best to share the best of the worst - just for fun!! If you have a great "Before/After" set - I'd love to see them! Nothing tells it better than the eye of the camera!! For now, let's just focus on the EXTERIOR of the houses - I know we could have a totally different contest on the inside of some of the houses we've seen!
Here is my submission - Isn't there some sports team that is Green and Gold? Maybe that was their inspiration. Anyway, these poor neighbors putting up with the GREEN MONSTER! This photo was taken by my team mates while they were out Staging - one of those - "You gotta see it to believe it!" scenarios. I have to agree - nothing tells it better than the visual image a digital camera captures!
Can you believe there is ANOTHER GREEN MONSTER - I took this photo just 2 days ago - in Lincoln, CA.
I posted this to another blog talking about good front doors - as an example of need for curb appeal, but I think this house deserves a shot at winning the CONTEST. Don't you agree? I guess the moral of the story with these 2 examples is that GREEN is NOT a good exterior color for a house - especially when it is of the neon persuasion! Don't you agree that the chain link fence in the front of this house adds that "special" touch?
Care to play along? Put your photos up. We can proclaim a winner based on your feedback - and how many submissions we get!!
Lighthearted and Fun for a Friday!!
