Woman sells house in Noe Valley, moves away. Four years later she finds out that new owners have sundered her twee craftsman, lovingly restored with "perfect colors" and transformed the interior into a minimalist white shell. In reality, her precious "craftsman" is more like late-80's "lumberyard" with clumsy detailing and ugly siding- which the recent renovators sadly left intact. She at least can take consolation that in a few years the all-white interior will look just as dated as when she left it. Just more recently out-of-date.
What's more interesting is her use of the blog format for a one-time howl into the unfeeling, mute universe. Unless she's going to hunt down more Crappy Cottages, in which case we totally want her writing for us.
