      I watched her debate with Warnock last night. She's quite something.

          Tim Dunn tweets some great stuff.

          And also tweeted that.

            haha, that Reading McMansion is seriously tasteless. The overall arrangement of the windows is almost worse than the ludicrously grandiose pillared canopy. You'd want to make sure you didn't live anywhere near its occupants. Still, pretty front garden.

              The oil patch really ties the place together.

                That pediment is something. The windows aren't even that horrible as McMansions go, there's at least some symmetry involved.

                  Feast your eyes on this beauty which has just gone on the market in the next suburb. Not so much for its size as its overall quality and style; I urge you to make time for the video. I pondered why they’d gone for lots of tall thin windows, rather than wide oblong ones, until Mrs. S reminded me the views would be of the industrial estate, Tip Top Bread factory and Bunnings warehouse. Still at least they went for the natural look with the garden:

                      I looked at it for a good while to establish it wasn’t CGI.

                        caja-dglh thanks, yes I thought it was an artist’s (poor) impression at first.

                            Precisely. And even in these publicity shots the cheapness of construction and finishes shines through. Big slabs of marble paired with the cheapest possible garden fencing and aluminium windows. But the little plastic moulding stuck up on the portico above the front door speaks volumes.
