Recently I was out in the Western suburbs of Chicago visiting family when I saw this house. Apparently it was an addition added atop a garage that was once part of a larger house; they tore down the larger house as part of a renovation plan which apparently was abandoned in light of the current economic downturn.
Now what you have left is this mind-numbingly ugly thing that I guess you'd call a house. I call it ordinance inducing, meaning so bad that someone has got to be looking at this at city hall and trying to figure out how to stop something like this getting built next time. That is a high hurdle of ugliness to climb.
