I see nothing green! What a boring landscape. I'll be happy here in my own back yard, thanks.

Being built just outside of Owasso Oklahoma, a suburb of Tulsa. Big drought same as here in Missouri I suspect.

I'm guessing that since the house was just built, the land had to be graded and grass or sod hasn't been planted yet.

But even so, it's -- so, so, flat! And dry. Couldn't they throw in a mountain or two, and maybe just a small ocean to give it some interest?

I know what you're saying. I need my hills. That's why driving from Columbus to Cincinnati has to be one of the most boring drives i've ever done (driving across Indiana comes in at No. 1). You look to the the right or left and once in a while you'll see A tree. Just one.

LOL No, and I don't ever plan on it either. The same goes for desert states.

Now, now, don't you be knocking those desert states...:)

I know, Sorry. It's the whole monochromatic thing I can't handle.

They've started planting sunflowers alongside I-71 to alleviate the boredom.

The desert is in bloom right now.....The greens are everywhere and the flowers are abundant......I always thought that the desert was monochromatic, but it isn't......Just joking with you......There is a bloom out here that only comes out in the monsoons and it is psychedelic when eaten....Of course, I have never tried this, but it does come on good authority.(Indians)

You are lucky to have blooms.  Here in the mid atlantic states we are in the midst of a draught, it has not rained at all in August.  Our playground looks like something from the dustbowl!

I understand....My daughter lives in Cleveland and was flooded out for the second time.....The SW is now going through the monsoon season where storms come into the area and drop much needed rains.....After September, these rains will stop until maybe December and January....

It's clearly a work in progress, middle of a drought before landscaping, nobody has any idea of the view they have (good or bad), the roofline view will only ever be seen if you arrive by chopper, the internal layout is a total mystery (it might be amazing), but does that stop the green-eyed looks? Apparently not.


Always take a good look at what you're about to eat. It's not so important to know what it is, but it's critical to know what it was.

I'd be happy with 1/4 of your back yard :)

I wonder what that octagonal thing is in the upper right hand side of the second picture? A fountain in the middle of the driveway? Pamilyn

Seems to be lacking character. After all, money doesn't buy taste!

NO GREEN!!  My first thought, too.  They must need to call each other on cell phones to locate where they are in the house..LOL

Yet again, just shows money just can't buy taste, aesthetic, even a minor amount of design sense, common sense enough to just stand back and look at the damn thing or even look admiringly at a good looking property and then say, what's going on here?

ITA - I've seen a lot of houses which I couldn't afford, which I would have loved to have owned, but that is definitely not one of them.
