METAL ALLERGY AT 7TH AND SAN VICENTE ...!

                             

A team of builders is putting the pedal to the metal today -- in more ways than one -- as progress continues on the Monstrosity Under Construction at 7th and San Vicente.  In a new development, the upper story of the home, known among insiders as "Casa del Bozo," has been encased in a thin layer of metallic sheets that seem rusted to perfection.  "I've never seen anything like it," said one real estate executive.  "I'd call the look Mottled Metal."  Experts predict that the rest of the house -- from the walls that curve like funhouse mirrors to the strange appendages hanging over the doorway -- will be covered in Stucco.  The only good news is that the infamous "Stairway to Nowhere" now leads to a rooftop observation deck.  Unfortunately, it will offer a panoramic view of my bedroom ...!

Guess you will have to get some really good window shades! Any one know who is going to live in "the house"?

"Mottled Metal"?? That doesn't sound appealing. --Cin

Uh oh...are big dark curtains in order? Maybe you could get some of that metal sheeting to shield your windows?
