COMMENT OF THE DAY: SURVIVAL OF THE WEIRDEST “As I have long observed, pretty soon the only remaining example of the original housing stock of the greater Rice Military neighborhood will be the Beer Can House.” [Miz Brooke Smith, commenting on Daily Demolition Report: Roll Out] Photo: Candace Garcia via Swamplot Flickr Pool
Great comment! And very likely.
Replaced by douchey poorly built stucco monstrosities; that won’t look decent in 10 years much less 25 or 50..
… I know of a happy original Rice Military bungalow that retired to a farm in Needville which likely will have a very long life there, given its tough construction!
Maybe one day there will be a house tour..”Where are they now? Moving House Tales.” Perhaps this will be Houston’s unique spin on preservation.
To be honest those little things look completely out of place there anyways. The areas style is those huge vertical things. The ‘old’ houses are the 2000s era Sandcastles.
