Here’s a house I didn’t show you during the Homearama tour a few weeks ago. Yeah, the picture’s a little crooked, and no, I wasn’t drinking. I don’t know if I wasn’t standing up straight when I took it or what. But that’s not the point.
Take a look at this walkway and front entry up close:
Nice, right? But don’t spend so much time admiring the house as you walk up that you forget to look down, just in case there’s a big hole in the middle of the path with some water in it that you might fall into:
Is it just me, or is this fountain maybe not such a great idea in the middle of the front walk? I have a feeling I’d be fishing my little one (and her little friends) out of it all the time. And I can just picture my 92-year old grandmother pushing her walker straight into it. “Watch out, Grandma!”
Let’s hope there are some bright, flashing lights that come on to warn visitors at dusk. Otherwise you might lose all sorts of trick-or-treaters on Halloween.
Yeah. I think I’ll stick to above-ground fountains for my million-dollar mansion. Thanks.
