Most of these are at least 20 years old. They don't build them like that any more.Thanks, Goldie. I first heard the term "snout house" in a course about city planning years ago. I've seen it in news articles and there is even a Wikipedia page about it so apparently it is a common term.
I got the idea for these photos from the work of Tom Wik. I figured that even if I photograph the houses perfectly straight on, I still wouldn't be able to see their front doors.
It's sad the lack of standards for the developers. While I was walking around and photographing these houses, I started noticing even more problems, and I got some ideas for future threads.

Don't own a house so have no clue but are you allowed to convert those garages into living space and just put your cars in the driveway.
