Parkie Pic of the Week

For those of you who live outside the area, University Park and Highland Park are together called Park Cities. Citizens of these fabled towns are called "Parkies". Hence, my weekly fun feature which I call "Parkie Pic of the Week" in which I like to highlight an unusual or spectacular feature of my neighborhood.

I happened across this new home (or remodel) in development recently. I adore the flat stone they are using. And you know I am a big fan of the metal roof. It looks like a hunting cabin you'd find in West Texas. Only 3,500 square feet larger than a normal hunting cabin would be.
I'm always bewildered by these pseudo-balconies people put on their houses. Yes, the doors can be opened - but there's a 24" walk out. What can you do with that? Stand in the doorway and look out? Weird. But, whatever floats your boat.

Can't wait to see it completed (with landscaping - needs landscaping).
