Pet peeve – building too high for its width

Pop has a example of a pop up that I think has gone too far. Normally they show some nice tasteful or at least height appropriate townhouses with new rooms / floors on top. DC is a great city for Pop Ups and going to the rooftops. Just be wary how wide your lot is.

In my neighborhood there is now a second example of someone building as tall as they can despite a lot width of 12 feet. I am sure I would reach both walls in this house if I tried. It is almost dangerously tall for the buildings around it. Plus do you really want to spend that much time on the stairs?

  1. My friend lives next door. During the construction they cracked the walls and foundation of his house. Tens of thousands to fix due to shoddy labor.
