This almost evokes days of playing with legos…before you knew how to appropriately assemble anything. Also reminiscent of a giant feng shui inspired fountain, with multiple levels of water falls. Or from the other view like a stack of bird houses? What do you see?
What is going on here?
-Additions upon additions to original house.
-Window openings have been altered and/or created
-New windows not in keeping with the style of the original house.
-Original part of house now covered in vinyl siding
-Placement of bricks, facing only a small part of the home’s front does not fit with the original part of the house.
– Addition on the right is disproportionate to the home’s original design.
-Remove the multiple additions made to the house. Perhaps move addition to exist as a separate structure?
-Reinstall original window sizes in original placements
-Replace vinyl siding with wood siding as the original would have had

While I admit this is kind of crazy, I also kind of like it
I’d guess that you’d need a map and some hiking boots to navigate the stairs inside. This is a gutter company’s dream (sales not installation). Possible remedy: remove all brick and siding, and replace with Japanese paper with matching lanterns.
Aesthetics aside, there are at least two chimneys significantly lower than habitable levels of the home, which usually presents a Building Code problem (and, depending on what’s venting where, possibly a nice carbon monoxide exposure).
This thing could probably be made to look plausible without losing the addition but it would take a lot of work.
Roberta: Maybe the ambulance is there to haul off someone overcome by the carbon monoxide ?
