The explanation for this one ought to be interesting. I can hardly wait!
@ Al – The easy guess is that it had to be elevated above the flood plain or floodway…considering how it is just about adjacent to Buffalo Bayou and one of its tributaries.
Yep, part of the former Camp Hudson, and nestled awfully close to Buffalo Bayou. It’s a beautiful subdivision, with actual real hills and slopes.
That’s all well and good, and no great surprise. The explanation I was (am) awaiting is how you get the Land Rover into the “garage”!
Yep, elevated to stay out of reach of Buffalo Bayou flood waters. Don’t forget to move the Jag to higher ground if it starts raining.
1987 just called. It wants its home decor back.
I’m with Al, I want to know the dimensions of that garage door.
It’s a normal height garage door. The rest of the house is large, which makes the garage look small. The garage door looks just like ours – 4 sections.
I guess I was making a mental comparison between the height of the front door and the height of the garage door. So the front door must be twelve feet (or more) tall – which is not impossible.
If the garage door is normally sized, the rest of the home must be of Brobdingnagion proportions. I love using the word Brobdingnagian.
Yeah, Brian, ‘Lilliputian’ gets all the glory, doesn’t it? Nobody remembers Brodbingnag.
I’d hardly be able to suppress the urge to shout “yahoo!” when sliding down the banister.
And the place is big enough for my herd of Houyhnhnms.
So…lots of funny comments but no explanation of the hobbit-sized garage door. Would love to be let in on the mystery. Doesn’t a Swamplot reader have an uncle who knows a barber who cut the hair of the owner?
The garage door just looks small because the rest of the house is so big (you can also tell that no hobbits are involved because of the absence of yellow and green). It’s roughly twice as wide as it is high, which is the normal proportion of a two car garage door. Also, look at the chair right beside it, and the roughly 20 steps getting up to the front door.
