Weekly Blend: April 6, 2018

The Weekly Blend is your “weekly” source covering real estate news that you just may have missed. Our hard-at-work Weekly Blend crew scours the web looking for obscure, bizarre, interesting and informative real estate (or real estate related) stories. If you have one you’d like to share please feel free to share it in our comments section or tweet about it using the hashtag #WeeklyBlend. So brew yourself a fresh cup of coffee and enjoy these stories. Maybe even share them with friends or colleagues. Happy reading!

Here are my weekly picks:

Mother Nature huffed, and she puffed, and she blew these houses under construction down in Niagara Falls earlier this week.

A highway is no place to park your house. A trailer carrying a mobile home near Edmonton caused quite the traffic jam when the driver misjudged the height of his load and got stuck under an overpass.

A steep street in Los Angeles is causing a rash of spinouts and crashes. Imagine if they had to deal with snow and ice on top of that.

This homeowner’s got the power(wall)! The first Tesla solar roof customer installation is now fully operating and outputting 5 kilowatts of power on a cloudy day.

Billy Joel’s beachside mansion in Florida is listed for $16.9 million U.S. Perfect for an Uptown Girl, perhaps?

Was there a door crasher promo on this house for sale in Connecticut? The driver of the SUV that plowed through the living room must have thought so.

Live amongst the birds at this climber’s dreamland in China. A sea of nets lined among the tree tops makes for the ultimate playground.

We can confirm Hansel and Gretel were not harmed in the making of this gingerbread house lookalike  in Massachusetts.

If you’re unfamiliar with the terms hygge and wabi-sabi, you could use a refresher course on design trends. What, mustard-tone refrigerators and parquet floors aren’t “in” anymore?
