1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Loathing: You deny that they have cheese in France?

    In our nearly 4200 posts in this thread has there ever been an example where, other than outright trolls, everyone approved of it?

    Who is everyone and based on comments, I would say there's been multiple, but the people who haven't commented could just not have commented because of they didn't like it.

    It's nice, but it almost seems more like a public area or shopping plaza instead of someone's home.

    In case it wasn't clear from the photos and plans, it's two homes with a common courtyard.

    Yes, at first I wasn't sure if it was one home, or multiple hotel suites, or some other arrangement

    I kinda like the Dune house.

    Other one, concept of taking one traditional looking house and fracturing it, is interesting, but poorly executed.

    Dont like the dune house either, that location allows for so much more and prettier architecture. Looks a bit like the architect wanted to incorporate view features in a traditional type of house there, and then decided to leave out all the features that make a traditional house fitting that area..

    Do one or the other, don't mix. Then again, I know shit about architecture.

    Just checking in after a while and the last three houses, I don't like too much. That glass thing is atrocious and not because there is no privacy. It is just such a showy mishmash. And the dune house really is not much better. hate that weird incline with the showy windows and the layout is horrible.

    The Mexican house duo I actually find quite interesting though the mass and material mix and confusing angles makes me nauseous. I have to confess that I do like the concept and idea and also the separation of open, public quarters downstairs and the rather clever layout of private quarters upstairs. But there is just way too much going on for me and the overall impression of sheer mass is crushing my soul ...

    Holy fuck ... I also missed the foo vs. SH shit storm, a dissertation on modernism or whatever-ism, lessons in home decorating, Steffi Graf and Ken Lay. Thanks, guys. I had quite a few laughs strolling through the last 8 or 9 pages ... carry on

    No. It doesn't.
