not keeping up with the joneses

Ahem. The house next door proceeds apace. Looming rather? Alas, my poor viewshed! Actually, it's fine from Hannah's Hideaway. Sort of hovers over the front porch at Claudia's Surf City. It does give certain people more confidence that The Big One isn't coming to wipe us off the map if aspirational Block Islanders are willing to build a mansion on the beach. And what will it do to my property values?

Nice porch!

The 'mansion' doesn't really appear to be that much larger than your house. All you need to do is make your porch into a wrap-around gallery & there you go!

I think your house is fine just the way it is!

And add a basement floor. . .

Not much larger. true. But it's up on a berm. It seems huge.

Let's face it. It's not great.
