- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
My name is Linda, pardon the silly username, I was having a hard time finding one that woudl work.
I live in SW Portland, a modest, somewhat countryfied area--Maplewood. Most homes are small, cute, have enough land for a small garden, a number of which have been devastated by McMansions planted on lots next door. These are HUGE houses, whose footprints cover nearly the entire lot, casting such shadows on their neighbors' homes that they can no longer grow tomatoes or have sunshine coming in their kitchen windows. Luckily I don't live in one of the now-dwarfed-and-shadowed homes, but it is terribly sad to see a cozy home destroyed in this way. Please take existing homes into account when deciding what kinds of homes can be built in an area.
