The eyesore on the block?

Could have easily been this piece of plywood on the side of our garage which greets our neighbors every time they step out their front door.

Shutters on each side of the window that appears to be looking out onto a bird on a limb.

The assumption was that this must be covering something hideous, so hideous that an ugly faded fake window into our garage where apparently there is a bird perched is a better option.

Continuing this assumption, I was thinking it was a window at some point and I'd need to tear it down and get new siding to cover up the old slot.

It took about 90 minutes to remove the 50 screws (maybe 18, but still overkill) and unveil a perfectly good (if not dirty) wall!


I was expecting neighbors from all around to walk out of their houses doing a slow clap.


  1. I CAN'T believe it!! Why did that ever exist??

  2. Yeah well, I'd wager it was the same person that thought it'd be a good idea to press straw into a kitchen wall!

    Whatever we do, lets not be "that guy".
