"Nail house"s"; are so called because "they stick out like nails in an otherwise modernized environment"

Something similar here in ohio, the lady known as the sheep lady. When developers came in she wouldnt sell her home and land. While the rest of the area became resturant and strip mall orientated. She ended up staying there until 2006 when she died and her family sold the land to developers of a condo community. They ended up calling the condo`s Shepards Lane.

most of the times is because the developers dont offer enough the first time, which insults the owner making him/her even more stuborn

I used to work across the street from Edith`s house in Ballard (seattle) wa. I watched them build those condos. She died shortly after they were finished building them. They kept offering her money to move, but she wouldnt. A co worker would mow her lawn every week during the summer, Kind of ironic, but i don`t work there anymore because they tore the building i worked in down and the company moved.

Here in the UK, the government just abuses its powers and forces a sale. At the lowest valuation, completely ignoring the demand for the land.

Lovely government we have here.

I`ve always wondered why there aren`t houses in big cities.

Turns out there are!

Pretty cool. Except the calling them "nail houses" part. That sounds extraordinarily ghey

it would suck getting your house taken away regardless, but i see it making more sense to say imminent domain for a highway than a shopping mall or apartment complex.

"The first looks like a render."
If you read the text at the bottom, you`d know it`s a scene from the disney movie "up".

i was too dm2754. in my small town they pretty much told all the houses in the way of a new high way they were going to take their houses. when it comes down to it, you don`t have a choice if they use imminent domain

I`m surprised to see one from the United States. They must have friends in high places. In the United States there is something known as imminent domain which allows the government to take your home and your property for the purpose of the greater good.
