I do love the view from the top of that house…..and, as I’ve driven by, wondered who had the audacity to build it. Thanks for the post!


Looks like a miniature prison to me.

When an under-construction photo was featured on the Report a dozen or so years ago I commented disapprovingly on it- largely from my vantage point as a preservationist concerned with the historic character of the region. But with the passage of time I am more in admiration of the vision and creativity displayed by the owners and architect. There is an interesting article on the owners’ rationale here:
