They paint the house black.  Including the shingles.

And it faces west.  Attachment Attached File



It's better than when it was an Air bnb, I guess.Attachment Attached File

But on the plus side, in the two or three weeks of Winter, they won't ever have to turn on their heater ...

Whatever happened to that pink house with the Arfcommer neighbor?

This reminded me of that.   And this is right next door to me. But I just sold out of Bluffview in Dallas.  

We bought a condo in Las Colinas to live in while my wife teaches a few more years and we build in Bosque Co.

Who paints shingles?  I mean, is this something that is routinely done (outside the weird examples we've seen)?  To me it's akin to someone getting their car painted and painting the tires and convertible top to match.

Painting brick houses charcoal and now black in my neighborhood has become popular with house flipper companies. Looks terrible.

Google streetview has it blurred out but it's easy to spot in satellite view.

I've seen it as well, lately. A new 'modern farmhouse' house in our neighborhood up on the hill with no shade, and about a third is flat black, to include most of the West facing walls. The rest is eggshell white, which seems difficult to keep clean. I'd have made different decisions, but this house at less looks pretty sharp for the time being.


All black is just dumb in any climate. Up in the PNW or NE, it is dumb due to legit Seasonal Affective Disorder considerations

Are they really painted, or just shingles that are black?

(In their defense, the owners may just be tarded)

How do I tell if someone is from Texas?

I ask them to pronounce:

Oil
Burnet
Lake Buchanan
Llano
Tow

I also ask them how the fishing is in Lake Victor and what the actual name is of Babyhead Mountain by Lake Buchanan.

503 Mountain View Dr, Pflugerville, TX 78660  for anyone not wanting to scroll around Google Maps until they see it.  I did see a purple roof elsewhere in Pflugerville, but when I went to street view, it was a nice blue that matched the house colors.  I was kinda hoping to find another freaky house.

How do you tell if they are not a Texan?

When they give directions and refer to "the 610" or "the 35".

The one on Central Ave is still there... and the BRIGHT pink house in Pflugerville (Settlers Ridge) is still there to my knowledge - now has a pink fence / driveway / front yard.

Owned by a youtuber / twitch streamer or something like that.

For some odd reason, that appears to be the new thing at least in central Texas. Black and battleship gray everywhere.  The shingle painting is new though.


House down the road from me is dark gray with a dark brown garage door, red shingles and black trim.  It used to be khaki tan. Idiots painted the limestone facing.

Maybe it's flippers thinking black uses the least amount of paint?

Battleship gray, eh?  Time to go for a dazzle camouflage scheme.

I hate the trend of painting over brick or stone.  Why would you cover a maintenance free fascia with one that requires maintenance?

What I'd like is Super Shiney Solar Refecting Silver all over.  Roof, walls, silver "mirror" reflective on all the glass. etc...  It would be eye melting to the neighbors, but help keep it cool inside...

Plus You could at least try to B.S. the H.O.A. that it is for "Energy Efficiency".
