I love the craftsman and Frank Lloyd Wright style homes. They offer so much character in my eyes. I grew up in colonials and I can navigate most of them with my eyes closed. I hate what banks did to our housing industry and then blamed it all on Americans that bought houses that they cannot afford. I am pretty sure that happened but their empty derivatives helped a whole lot more. Renting sucks!!!! I don't want to ask permission to paint!!!!!

This article is ****. The new style American home has 4 feet of weeds in the yard with  a REO sign on it and a meth lab in the basement. Look at every other block in this country and tell me you cant see one of them................

  • California Split Levels- those are from the 70's and are everywhere.
  • 50's style ramblers, just a rectangle-shaped house, one story.
  • 3-story San Francisco style homes are hugely popular nowadays because they take up less ground space, they also call this Dutch-style.
  • 40's Brick Bungalow's with one-car garages, usually two stories w/basement.
  • Cookie Cutters of the 80's, 90's and 2000's...they are close together, not big yards (or lack yards), tight parking, every 3rd one looks alike, same paint colors, little landscape...and very generic.


Personally, I love the Tudors,  Cape Cod, Colonials and Ranch. Next best are Craftsman and Victorian.

In the Northeast there are more Raised Ranches,  and Center Hall Colonials than you can shake a stick at.

Where is the basic, boring, cost effective, raised ranch? It is the most popular style home built in over half of the country. Nobody loves them....but almost everybody has lived in one at some point.
I hate Frank Lloyd Wright.  Always have;  always will.  The prairie school house is just one more example of grand reputation and poor taste.  They should all be demolished as we return to European roots and the classic styles, or any roots and any style.  I understand that Falling Water is in the process of self-destruction as we speak.  How about the idiotic house, and furniture, that he built for the 'vertically challenged' Mr. Kaufmann?  Give me the 17th and 18th century any day.

Yeah it's too bad about all the Americans who lost their homes, but on the bright side I just got a steal of a deal on my new one.  I was actually thinking I hope they elect a Republican again and he starts dinking with the auto industry......I need a new car !!

Reality check.  NO ONE over the age of 18 is homeless for any reason other than personal choice.  The End!      Unless I missed your point, you 'feel' that all the people that worked and invested and ended up with bank stock in their retirement fund, IRA, etc., should just give up what they worked for so some other person doesn't have to learn basic life lessons.  Did you know you are an idiot?

As well as a thief!
