Chairlift and ropetow to be in by Friday!
Great pictures. I am never surprised at what builders/developers will come up with to sell a lot. What part of the country are these in? I can't see that working at all around here but you never know. The homeowner will have a great time trying to see either in or out of the garage. I hope nothing is in their way.
In the 15 years I spent in the trade I don't think I have seen anything quite so stupid with the exception of a rambler we built with a 12 foot deep crawl space because it was built over a sink hole (Not my idea).
An H1 Hummer would high center at the garage opening from the looks of the photo.
The driveway might have worked if they had moved the sidewalk out to the curb where it belongs.
..................and somebody will make money on this!
I vote this for the Darwin Award.
My brother has the same thing in Salem, VA. His isn't this bad, but you bottom out every time you go up the driveway. He has a Dodge Caravan and you basically have to go 1/4 per hour down there and exit at an angle. you still scrape a majority of the time.
Where the hell is that???? That is impossible - are we sure that's not a good photoshop job?? Wow..............
PS - The red dirt makes me think it's in Georgia...............
Well you can pretty much guarantee you won't see any F-cars in this neighborhood
There's no way! You could kill yourself stumbling out of your garage.
That's certainly the result of a half-ass job in development! My folks are custom home builders and they would loose their business for something like that.
Hope the owner likes motorcycles.
Not only is the builder stupid, but who would buy it?
Imagine winter in that thing...
As far as I know it's a legit development, not a photoshop. A girl here in the office had it sent to her from one of her friends with the tagline "Give a developer a pencil..."
I don't know where it is, but I suspect it's in the (not to far) South due the reddish dirt (as Wolgang pointed out).
I've got tonnes of other photos of ridiculous architecture I should dig up.
Somebody WILL BUY IT! Believe me.
Builder should have cut into the bank and put the garage at street level with a bonus room above that would include stairs. Better sense and better sale price for minimum capital.
With idiots like this out there it makes me want to get back into the business. SHEEESH!
I have to find a picture of a driveway that I took in Deep Cove North Vancouver, now that was STEEP!
I've never seen a driveway that could use a handrail. That would really suck if it was iced over.
Maybe a skate park blueprint got mixed in with the elevation plans?
i don't believe it.
Talk about bad Fung Shuei
my guess is this is a lot that has been built up, most likely for flood purposes. it is not uncommon in houston for people to use their garages as storage, but i find it hard to believe that this driveway will be usable. most cars will not have the ability to climb the grade much less enter the portion past the inturn as their front and rear bumbers would hit the ground. i have seen this situation before and i could not climb a similar drive way in a two wheel drive chevy truck. a four wheel drive would climb it, but barely. it will be interesting to see if this house stays like this, although it is difficult to imagine what else could be done. my first guess would to greatly increase the grade of the inturn in order to allow for a smoother approach.
Does the house come with a G-wagon?
It was a nice trick getting the concrete to stay put while it hardened.
