The Better To See You With

These are pictures of a nearby house. I’m all for natural light, but they must go through monumental amounts of glass cleaner. Apparently, you just can’t have too many windows.

    I’d hate to be in charge of washing the windows in THAT house.

  • Stacey @Real World Mom

    Wow! That is A LOT of windows! The first thing I thought of was Windex! LOL!

  • Ashley

    I don’t think that houseplan was thought through very good. We have some friends with a lakehouse (actually ON the lake – unlike our “lakehouse” where you can walk to the lake) with HUGE windows on the whole one side of their house so they can watch sunrise to sunset over the lake. Really cool, but I’d hate to be cleaning them…and even worse, I’d hate to be paying to clean them.

    best way to keep an eye on the servants if you ask me…

  • MamaWise

    Wow, that’s crazy. What does that part of the house overlook? A lake, or something like that, I hope.

  • Momo Fali


    No, not a lake. Just a good old Ohio side street.

  • Misty

    What intrigues me is that it appears there is a window or two between floors… hmmm…

  • The MomBabe

    Ooh, not for me. I don’t like lots of windows cause then I scare myself and think people are watching me and that they’re gonna kill me and you know, that’s just not a good feeling….

  • Bad Momma

    Maybe they like to keep an eye on their neighbors.Perhaps they are the neighborhood block watch captains. I would not want to see their heating bills.

  • holly

    they are really rEALLY close to being the type of people who shouldn’t throw stones.

    maybe with this level of glass they shouldn’t throw pebbles?

  • chefmom

    We have friends who live in OH, and when I looked at this picture, It reminded me of their neighborhood! Small world, if you knew them. Anywho, I would either a) hire someone to clean the windows. or b) walk around nekked so that no one would be tempted to even look in the windows, or anywhere near the house. Hence, no need to clean the windows. 🙂

  • Nola

    Do you think there was a window sale they couldn’t pass up??

  • HRH

    haha. I am puzzled by the “middle window” on the first shot. Is it on the first floor, second floor or floor 1 1/2? hmmmmm

  • AlisonH

    We have one whole side of our house that’s basically floor-to-ceiling windows looking out on the backyard. Very pretty, very Californian, and very expensive to heat. But it IS pretty!

  • OHmommy

    Wow… imagine dressing all of those windows with drapes. Mucho dollars… and cleaning them.

    I see YOUR snow has melted. On the East side we are still full of snow. And it is raining today. UGH!

  • Ok, Where Was I?

    You know, some people don’t even clean their windows. Not me of course. But some people.

  • hottdog

    geez. i hope they don’t throw stones…

  • Lisa

    Maybe they don’t believe in electricity and they need the natural light 😉

  • <---That Girl

    it’s al a bit weird looking…the whole thing!

  • newnorth

    I don’t even want to think about blinds or curtains. yikes

  • momto4kidsny

    OH my! I thought I had a ton of windows…at least 2 or more in every room! So glad I don’t have that many because I would never have time to blog!! LOL

  • meleah rebeccah

    sheesh….id hate to clean that house

  • Maureen

    Wow, maybe the money they save in electricity for lights is spent on heating….

  • Dapoppins

    Just because you have windows does not mean you have to clean them.

    Just saying.

  • Mommy Bits

    I would def. need to hire somebody. I can barely remember to windex my living room window – the one the dog smudged with his nose.
