Enviro-house



There's a slight chance that the house in this listing -- found by Karen on Photoshop Disasters -- has been Photoshopped. Or maybe the owners just really like lawns and really hate cars.

This is my first time visiting your blog, and I love it. Too funny!

That looks just like the play house I used to have for my plug people. (Plug people anyone?) It had hinges and was sliced in half down the middle and you could open it up.

Yes, I think this house must be for plug people, not real people.

Check out the location map. According to google, the picture must be REALLY photoshopped, because it's actually a strip mall.

It is some unusual type of grass that is not harmed by cars driving to the garage but can't hold up to pedestrians.

So this house in in Pennsylvania but the prize for requesting more info is 1000 Euros. I gess the dollar is pretty much worthless.

PA1 is not Pennsylvania, USA. It's a listing in England.

Still funny, very funny, but not as bad as David thinks!

Actually, using an "artist's impression" is pretty commonplace in the UK when selling off-plan (i.e. before the property is built) - although they would normally label it as such.

Uh, yeah. Thats a 3D rendering of what these houses are going to look like. Builders usually do these before the land is plowed. Its kind of a proposal thing. Trust me, I applied for a job doing that for Toll Brothers.

Or this it the model home. Quite often the developer's sales people work in an office in the garage. And they make the landscape all pretty out front without regard for the garage. Then later when they sell it, the garage is turned back into a garage and the driveway concrete is poured. At least that's how it works in South Florida.

Looks like it's just a model home for a new home development. The shadows all look real, so they probably just haven't poured in the driveway. You see that alot in model homes, and often the sales agents have an office in the garage.

I would rather assume that we are finally seeing the dawn of the Age of Flying Cars, long promised but only now deliver'd!

A 'green' driveway for a 'green' car.

Um, actually..... PA1 is the post code for central Paisley in Scotland.

I temped for a company who built this type of development (ironically taken over by Barratt) and the house brochures weren't just shopped, they were entirely computer generated.

Many people buy "off plan" i.e. before the thing is actually built and are simply going from artists' impressions, architect's drawings and computer generated images.

These little cul-de-sac developments are increasingly popular too.

Maybe, they actually have the house of the future and a car like the Jetsons.

You know the pictures are funny, but your commentary makes it even funnier.

Ally said...

Dawn, you're so right.

It's the wonderful commentary that keeps us tuning in again and again - go Sara!
