This now makes more sense. My wife and I jogged past this "haunted house" so many times wondering what would happen to it. We saw the inside during the estate sale and assumed whoever bought it was a multi-millionaire given the cost required for minimum level renovation. It looks like a big house from the street, but it feels much bigger inside. Sounds like the buyers didn't make terrific calculations on the reno, but I'm very glad it was saved, and it will be nice that others can experience the neighborhood.

That last house makes me really sad; the rest of it looks like a mini-Beacon Hill.

I get making a house modern or for today’s living standards, but this poor gray and white thing they’ve created is just an awful mess. It looks like the house in Beetlejuice after the Deetzes move in.

I'll reserve judgement until it's actually finished.

Two tone extreme is what's in style right now.

Expect more homes to be painted more extreme like this.

Two tone cabinets was just the start.

I'm a fan of any trend that moves away from all-white cabinets/kitchens. People will be so mad they did that in 5 years.

Apologies if this was posted somewhere else, I searched for "sequence climbing", "bouldering", etc. and didn't find anything

At 17th & Washington (1710 Washington St) a warehouse is being turned into a bouldering gym called Sequence Climb that also features a multi purpose training room for yoga and fitness classes.

City Scene KC write up on Sequence Climbing: https://cityscenekc.com/sequence-climbi ... rossroads/

Looked like they cut the slab and poured the spread footings a week or two ago (I live close to the place and pass it on my drive to work everyday)Image
