In keeping with today’s Halloween theme, here are a few “mansard” roofs which should be enough to make even the most hardened Trick-or-Treater think twice before knocking:
How much did it cost to uglify this former single-family house with this bizarre appendage and what benefit was ostensibly gained from it?
A bit top-heavy, don’t you think? Weird.
Was this mansard-roofed garage addition supposed to somehow “respect” the house it is attached to?
The following mansard-like roofs were grafted onto commercial structures rather than houses, but that doesn’t make them any less scary! Sorry about the poor image quality; these photos were all taken before I got a better camera:
Not only is the “mansard” appendage bad, but what was done to the rest of this brick building is equally appalling.
Oh, guys? When you’re done adding the “mansard” roof to the front, could you board up all the second floor windows and stick a porch light in the exact center of each one? Thanks – it will make the building so much more attractive!
Yes, there is a Victorian-era commercial storefront buried beneath this thing.
Don’t care for Romanesque arches? No worries – just neuter them with paint and a mansardesque roof appendage!
This is just plain silly. But also scary because it actually happened.
