20210606 Lintels

For years during summer, when sitting in the garden, we heard a group of people walk through our alley and a voice of man talking about architecture. He must have been a professor with his students and he chose my town for his yearly excursion. And every year I heard him talk about the house of our neighbours and how nice it was. He would talk about it for minutes and then he would turn around and talk about my house. With a big sigh he would tell about everything that was wrong. The proportions were bad, the foundation must have been pretty bad for such a relatively new house, because there are all the cracks in the wall en then he would finish with talking about the lintels above our windows and he would laugh about how bad they were and talk about it for minutes. Students can learn a lot about my house.
