The dirt is browner on the other side.

You might recall a few weeks ago I posted some little spy shots of progress of the houses on the next street over.  Well during my trip to ensure everything was in place for settlement, I noticed the fences around those houses had now been taken down, and those houses look much closer to nearing completion.  One even has it's own fence!

Being able to get a bit closer makes it a bit easier to figure out what house plans these actually are built on - we know that they're Metricon builds, and while I can't be certain, I would guess that the one on the left, with the darker roof, is a Burton 29.

It's the one on the right though, with the dune coloured roof, that's of most interest.

That's interesting - that room looks very familiar.
Yes, in fact looking around the edge of the house, peeking in through all the windows, I can most definitely say that it appears to be another Metricon Delta.
What size I'm not 100% certain, but I suspect it's a 22 - the four-bedroom variant of what I'm building.  If I was desperate, I could probably figure out whether it's a 22 or 24.
But it seems they've gone for all tiles inside, larger windows and sliding door at the back, and generally a fair amount of upgrades inside.

Lastly, I went for a bit of a walk around the block to see how things have progressed, and around the corner was this little garden.  When I do the garden I'll not be planting any grass out front, as I simply don't want to have to mow a tiny patch.  I'm not looking to do anything quite a silly as this, but I thought it was cute.  Seems like they might want to be gluing those stones down though.

  1. I have to say, those windows and sliding doors do look great, although it does seem awkward that the huge windows of the two houses are facing each other. Unless it’s actually just parts of one property. Still, weird.
