Looking through X

Across the street, the neighbor’s house in progress. Many angles, including X.

They would like it to be finished by Thanksgiving. Maybe…want to bet??
On Halloween night, we heard booming and pounding from across the way. At first we wondered if some local tricksters were up to no good, but it turned out instead to be a work crew, who continued until around 9 pm. Now, we’re in a period of rain for several days. At least they got a roof and tar paper down.

There’s an old movie, a comedy, with Cary Grant and Myrna Loy, about the “adventure” of having a home built, titled “Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House.”
Great movie, perfect for a rainy evening. Especially for those who have been through the process of building or remodeling…

No words in the Basic English vocabulary begin with X, but it occurs in words beginning with other letters. X is the third most rarely used letter in the English language.

Always interesting to see a house being built. I bet that wood has a nice scent! I remember making drawings of my dream house when I was a kid. I wanted a big square house with a cut-out in the middle that was open to the sky with a pool. Still sounds good to me!

Will one of your houses in France fit the bill as your dream house? ;)

The wood does smell good, and the house is much further along. I'll get some more pics soon.
