I was going to say that that house isn't much of a looker, but then I realize what an abomination the previous iteration was.

I like the design. Prairie Style - Frank Lloyd Wright

It's only Wrightian in the most basic of ways IMO. The windows are all off for that style and the proportions are too massive. To me it just looks like they slapped an Artisan Homes design on top and called it a day (and I generally preferred their builds to the standard suburban homes.)

I think it primarily is oversized roofing material and the front door that primarily turn me off.

I'm much more partial to this redesign.

A two storey "ranch" with faux brick/block veneer?
Given your architectural criticism of everything from soup to nuts I assumed you had good taste. So if mosaic stadium was clad in faux veneer block sheets from my grampa's basement instead of split tyndall stone, would you like it better?

Sorry - I'm just having some fun with you. It looks........nice.

Considering it previously had aluminum siding I'd say the limited use of veneer stone is just fine.

Additionally the interior work is quite nice, especially in comparison to the above.

Ripplinger Homes is advertising that they are building both of the new prominent Crescent area homes.

(13 Leopold Cres and 36 Angus Cres)

It appears the house at 3233 College Ave is going to be taken down and replaced with a new home.

Don't know if anyone noticed (or cares) but the list price of this :previous: house was reduced by $260,000 and is now available for the low, low price of $1,390,000!

Dan0myte Oct 25, 2016 9:16 PM

The foundation for 13 Leopold is being poured. If you remember the previous home, it looks like the new home is going to follow roughly the same footprint. It will be interesting to see what style the homeowner chose to go with and how much of the original materials are reused in the construction.

More info on the former 13 Leopold. I am afraid it was an eclectic mess not worthy of saving. I love streamlined and art moderne homes, but this was a mess.

I'm a bit surprised to see no basement on the Leopold lot.

That's just perspective. It has a basement.

The only recent house I've seen not do a basement is this ugly mess.

Ha ha good description - I share those thoughts. Mind you, I can't imagine anyone wanting to build an eye-catcher on that corner, so to see new construction at all at that location was refreshing.

dsmmace Oct 26, 2016 5:17 PM

That's a house?!?

someguy Oct 26, 2016 6:16 PM

With our expansive clay soil in Regina, it doesn't make sense to build with a basement. I'm hoping to start construction of a fourplex spring 2017 using screw piles, and having a heated crawlspace.

There are too many houses here with failing foundations, it just doesn't make sense to continue building the way we do.

bomberjet Oct 26, 2016 6:24 PM

Are screw piles the answer?? I'm not an expert on the subject, but have heard numerous things about not using them. Something about the screw going through the clay can cause issues with capacity. As in the screw just chews up the soil and you really have nothing supporting the load.

The Bess Oct 26, 2016 7:02 PM

I deal with screw piles all the time supporting energy plants and other industrial installations. I have seen no problems with them. You basically alter the pipe size and the helical size and amount based on the load you need.
