Tipped House in Plainfield, VT
On the way to do a Certified Naturally Grown inspection of a farm in Plainfield Holly spotted this most interesting looking house that appears to have tipped over. After finishing we went back and took a look. What wonderful, creative architecture! This is one of the greatest arguments against zoning and building rules I can think of. Zoning stifles creativity. In a box lot this sort of expression would be banned. How sad. There are several other very interesting houses around.
I picked the town we live in because it has no zoning. I don’t fancy being told what I can and can’t do down to the last nit picking detail. Perhaps simple zoning, especially in built up areas isn’t evil, but unfortunately all to often zoning becomes a club used to beat the creativity out of people so that they will conform and fit in little boxes. It’s a slippery slope.
So on this soon to be Independence day, let’s celebrate creativity and our freedoms.
