HOME ADDITIONS AND OTHER STUFF

This morning the weather was threatening and I didn’t want to get caught in a downpour out on the prairie so I walked around town. I walked most of the north and south streets in Coupeville. That ends up being quite a workout since north – south goes from the beach up to around 200 feet. Since it was all in town I began noticing some of the additions that people have made to their homes. Then I noticed the horrible colors some people have used to paint their homes. I hope you find this interesting and you get to see a wee bit more of my town.

Here’s today’s route:

Thank you Google Pedometer

The first add-on I noticed was this “crows nest”. Here on the island “view” is everything and some people go out or their way to get one.

This add-on looks like it would be a nice writing room or craft room.

I don’t know what these people were thinking with this addition. It’s an area they created under their deck and the sliding glass doors are sloping outward which would be hard to seal with all the rain we get. They did look wet on the inside.

Here are a couple more “view platforms” that caught my eye.

This was not an addition but it seemed a strange to build a garage at a 45 degree angle.

And then there is “color”. I’m not sure what these people were smoking but it must have been just before they went to the store to look at paint chips. There seems to be a lot of “green”.

The next time I walk around town I’ll get some pictures of the beautiful Victorian homes that were built by sea captains in the late 1800’s.
