Let me know when and I'll find a little place for you.
You'll like the Pacific NW and Seattle is great for your street shooting genre..

Ken, really good. But a half a mil wouldn't buy you a single family detached around here, even with a crappy view. Just a townhouse where you have to go up and down stairs just to change your mind.
Just to change your mind.... Thanks Ted.

you can trial Oloneo
http://www.oloneo.com/en/page/download.html

7mm is very wide, and to be honest I probably overuse it a bit. But there are times when you need it, like those 5ft x 6ft bathrooms,

very tight frontages.You just 'have' to show some aspects but the proximities can be really tight leaving you with 10ft or so or be over a cliff

or too pull off some effect in a very confined space that just helps people understand the arrangement of rooms they are looking at

IMO you just have to have solutions to these problems, how you use them is pretty much up to you
Had to smile looking in the bathroom there. I usually have to crop out the curving door frame to get a shot at the sh*tter, I do remember to put the seat down though.

That hillside goes with, "Just step back a bit and I'll get it all in"

That shot showing the arrangement of the rooms is useful. Been a bit of a backlash to wide angle in some parts of the real estate world here, calling it misrepresentation!!! (I thought it was bigger) How else can you show a house? with the 15 shots allowed on the MLS?

Useful lens that, all in all though and Oloneo looks interesting, have to look at it some more.

Only 15 shots? The MLS here is 25 shots.

That is either a polygon room or a 10 foot doorway. Impressively straight though.
I think I'm going to be seasick.......

The D.C area (along with NYC) is one of the very few parts of the country where the real estate prices (which were already much higher than other locations) still have continued their unreasonable climb. Most of the rest of the country have had a fallback adjustment since 2008. Our prices have rebounded a little bit, but a half mill here will still get you an absolutely gorgeous mansion on a big lot with a pool and a view.

it was a bank job, so I guess the owner was already dead

it kind of demonstrates the need to be careful, and how furnishings will change the look of a space

I haven't seen water tanks attached to rain spouts since I lived in NZ. The last couple of homes you showed have rainwater tanks.
Lots of rural homes in NZ use rainwater cisterns, especially in the hills.

Here you can't get a building permit unless you have a water supply. Either a community well or a private one. Even though we get our share of rain here.

we went through a fire defence phase here a decades ago, basically the house is encapsulated inside a foil sheathing inside the walls and through the roof.
Which meant adding layer of regulation councils hadnt thought of before.

In refining that, out here new houses have tanks and double glazing by regulation, but its only about garden water supply and water conservation I think

Although due to rising connection costs there are more and more homes that are remote from power and water, so have their own stand alone systems

It reminds me of that old Windows screen saver, with the brick wall maze.
