Still better than dealing with a HOA.

Moonfisher: I love interesting homes like that. People need to get the sticks out of their asses and enjoy life more.

Awesome I agree, life is to short to worry about other peoples houses. If you feel your property value is going down you are an investor not a HOME OWNER. Live your life and love it where you are is where it's at.

BolloxReader: I love places like this. If I could live in a neighborhood with every house made up like American Pickers meets circus sideshow meets Marilyn Manson I would.

But then I have nothing but contempt for well-manicured lawns. You have this wonderful tableau with which to express yourself and it's kept nicely sterile. Maybe get daring with a Japanese maple-- at least until idiots file complaints because that naturally brings Japanese beetles (ex brother in law was forced to remove his because of this rationale).

Jazz it up. If it's your land, make it speak your soul to those passing by. Make them feel something.

When, in reality, Japanese beetle grubs love to grow up nibbling on the roots of those nicely-manicured lawns...

the ha ha guy: rkiller1: Really, the popcorn comes out for a HOA thread?  Y'all understand that HOA rules are disclosed BEFORE you buy the house, right?


Not always. A friend of mine was told that there was no HOA on the house he was buying. Then once he got to the final paperwork, there was a line buried in the middle stating that he agreed to the HOA rules. The homeowner (the HOA chairman) told him that he could see the rules a week later, but if he didn't sign that day he would be officially retracting his offer, and unable to put in any other offer on any house covered by that HOA.


Similar thing happened to us.  We purchased after receiving a copy of the HOA rules.  Nothing outrageous - about 2 pages basically saying no trailers, no fences, no pickups in the grass.  Once we moved in, the HOA president strolls over and gives us a copy of the real HOA rules, which was about 20 pages thick.  Seems our Realtor had an "old copy".  Still worked out though, it still says the same thing, just with more clarity.  So far, they haven't screwed with us over anything (and we put up a fence with their OK).  In our neighborhood, the HOA exists for what they were originally intended - to keep the riffraff out, not to screw with the people living here.

I would have said "sounds good to me" and walked the fark away. That's bait and switch, and in most places, it's illegal.

Leave it to the French to show America what needs to be done. This museum should be copied in every major city and tourist attraction in the USA. The world is an ugly place and this man shows that. We sit in our duplexes, driving SUV and sipping from the teat of consumerism. All while burying our heads in the sand. It's time to open your eyes and realize there is an ugliness out there that transcends right, left, liberal, conservative, democrat or republican. If we don't acknowledge it is there, we can do nothing to fix it.

A beleaguered Revel, who took up the inherited legal battle when Dumont retired, explains that she has fielded numerous complaints from village parents who are worried about the the effect Ehrmann's outré artistic output may have on their children.

Neighbors: We hate that "art" and we want it taken down.

Authorities: Na. Its ok.

Neighbors: Wait. What we meant to say was won't somebody think of the kids?!

I wish my neighbors were more eccentric.  Life is more fun when you're not the only fun loving house on the block
