Between Renfrew and Arnprior, 14 minutes from my house [that is and always has been and always will be the exact figure], there are three model homes. They have been there for as long as I can remember, and are provided by Seahawk Homes. The third house is a boring basic house with blue siding. The second is a boring basic house with fake brick siding. But the third, dubbed "The Oakdale," is this beauty:
It is so nice and wooden and windowy. Now I'm not saying this is the nicest house in the world, but it is by far the nicest of the three houses at this particular corner on the highway.
Like I said, these houses have been there for many, many years. In 2003 [I don't know why, but that seems right] a company called Bonneville Homes built three of their own show houses about two minutes down the road [that's 16 minutes from my house]. Their houses are nicer. Also, they rotate their houses. In 5 years, there have been 7 houses there. Yes, I track these useless things.
With all this Bonneville Home up-to-date-ness, I've often wondered why the hell Seahawk Homes never get replaced.
Yesterday, there was some damage to my precious Oakdale.
Today, Oakdale is a cement platform.
Goodbye, Oakdale. I loved you. Quick and painless death, I guess.
The Seahawk website [which is based in Arnprior, which I did not know, and which produces both modular and custom built houses, which seems like quite the vast array of services] says that new houses are on their way in 2008. That's this year!
They better do justice to Oakdale. That's all I'm sayin'.
