Aren't we lucky!

Aren't we lucky to have these new box-houses in our community!

Michigan's Pulte Homes has come
to the Seattle Area. We already had
a good supply of DingBat Builders. J-

I do understand that our area needs
jobs for our many skilled carpenters,
I'd like to see all of them building
homes that are well designed,

worthy of their multifaceted talents
and manifold skills. Not the same old,
same old shown above.

Jeez Jerry, you're just jealous 'cause you have to live in an old house!

Ughghughughugh, it makes my skin crawl at how these, houses, note I didn't use the word homes, eat up open space! Perhaps we should look at it like this: no one will even care when they get remuddled!

I'm certain people thought the same for houses like mine:

Emil predicted all this-

Joe- I took the famous developer
Emil Hanslin out flying over the
Pine Lake Plateau years ago.
He predicted that all this would
happen- as it most certainly has.
