Touring homes

touring homes 
under construction— 
the freedom 
to step right inside
our neighbors' closets

  1. This brought a smile: an awesome satirical piece - closets being so - symbolically - loaded these days.

    1. Before we decided to move to Millbrook, we would visit homes for sale in different areas. It was kind of fun to peek at the lives of other people. I often wonder what the potential buyers of the house we sold thought of us after viewing the house with all its fine points and warts.

  3. Thank you, everyone.

    Adelaide, our potential new next-door neighbors recently told us that they've "been in your [our] basement [crawlspace]" -- when our house was being built a few years ago.
