    Default A lot to love

    In a leafy residential area a few miles from downtown Kansas City, Missouri, an enterprising architect saw opportunity where others saw trouble. He took a sloping, triangular lot and designed a new home for his growing family—an open, tree house–like structure on stilts that hovers at the quirky edge of a conventional neighborhood.

    The Arnolds’ bedroom and living area float over the hillside, the large windows allowing light to flood in from both sides. A bamboo-enclosed deck sits atop the house’s foundation.

    I like it but the outside needs more curb appeal. Right now it just looks like a brown box.

    Awfully sparse.

    So dull I could cry.
    I'd spend all my time on those awesome swings, instead of inside the bland house.

    I'm shocked at how badly most of these gorgeous properties are decorated. Bland, cheap and sterile.

    Love the fireplace. The white walls in the kids room...yeah that's gonna be buying stock in Clorox. Good idea, parents.

    The bathroom looks like an afterthought and I can see my fat ass drowning in that horrible tub.

    I like it overall, but yeah it is bland isn't it-could use something to give it some more character, inside and out.
    Don't slap me, cause I'm not in the mood!

    Hate it from the outside. The inside is boring and uninspired.
