Awkward looking house in Calgary.

By the way, where else in Canada is concrete the norm for driveways and not asphalt?

Gravel or dirt are pretty common for driveways in Timmins.

What a beaut.

And that fucking twig planted on the front lawn.
That's "blech" architecture, they have misused the material all to no avail, at the very least the brick should surround the entrance area for texture.

Concrete is more common in southern Ontario as well, though not dominant. It’s pretty odd actually since concrete driveways are almost never done in Toronto and the suburbs, but moving into Burlington and Hamilton they become more common, although asphalt is still the most popular.

Windsor is mostly concrete driveways from my understanding.

I find in a similar vein primary brick colour changes....in the GTA and eastern Ontario it is often a reddish brown brick and beyond about Kitchener to London to Windsor it is a lot of yellow brick...likely connected with the colour that the local brickworks produces.

Looks like a cookie cutter Big Box store you would find anywhere. Ugly yes but not unique.

I honestly did not know they had rolled out the Réno-Dépôt banner outside Quebec.

Three years ago I bought a specific set of curtains for my gazeebo and they were only available at Reno Depot in Aurora. And that white Accord in the pic is the same model of my car and I have the same kind of black steel rims for winter tires.

For a second thought this pic was of my car there that day. Then again it was in May that we went since it was on the way to the cottage.

That last one looks like a king-sized version of the Venetian in Edmonton

Haha, I actually don't hate that one in Batumi.

Macau is just terrible though. Spent a week there for the Grand Prix and I couldn't get over the horrible architecture. It's on another level.
