Eyesore of the Week: Raise the Roof?

Let's hear it for crowd-sourcing! This week's eyesore comes from reader Mike Banker, who writes, "It's mostly the blindness to scale that I like about this house and it's columns."

Mike's right—those are some Brobdingnagian columns, better suited to holding up a courthouse than the roof of an otherwise fairly attractive bungalow. But I think we shouldn't be too hasty to dismiss the massive supports as gratuitous. For all we know, that trellis could be made of Copernicum. (If that is the case, the neighbors might want to watch out.)

Is there an eyesore in your neighborhood? Send your submissions, with a photo, to bwaterhouse@wweek.com.
