Take a moment to look at this house. I have watched with interest as it goes up, because no matter how far along it gets, the construction strikes me as odd. Every time I see it, one question plagues me, so far without resolution: How do you get to the front door?

What looks, to my admittedly untrained eye, like the front door-like space appears prohibitively high off the ground. I don’t see room for a substantial porch, with stairs, which might be the most logical solution.

Construction workers building the house have put ladders up. Will the owners employ a similar tactic? You could, at least, guarantee no solicitors came to your door: simply pull up the ladder!

Or are the owners world-class high-jumpers? Do they have extra-long limbs? More prosaically, do they intend to go through the garage exclusively? (If so, why put the front door there at all?)

Things that make me go “hmmm.”
