I can't get behind this design.

Illustration for article titled I cant get behind this design.

It has two types roofing. It has the trendy wood paneling that’s all the rage in parts of Seattle and Eastside, but had the stone pillars of contemporary McMansions in Bothell. The garage doors were pulled from the boxy new homes in Issaquah highlands. All of the colors clash. It’s trying to look like too many thing at once. But all that stuff is just tacked on.

Thankfully I was working in a wonderful little craftsman house up the street.
