Lots of construction around here

Here are some houses being built down the street from me, toward the west. The first one is about three doors away. It's huge, as you can see. I think it is a five-bedroom house with a three-car garage!

The second photo shows another five-bedroom house, being built farther down the street. It has an interesting front porch on it, conducive to sitting out on nice evenings. Notice all the trees to the left of this house. They'll be gone soon, once those lots are sold and cleared for building.

The third one is of what's left of the forest behind my house (and across the street back there). Some of the houses being built in that area are right on the Willow Creek Golf Course. Yesterday morning, crews began clearing a lot among these particular trees -- just left of the center of the photo. I just wish they'd at least leave the tallest trees on the lots, as well as enough trees between the new houses and the street. Too bad this developer doesn't take a clue from the regulations in The Woodlands about how wide a swath of trees to leave intact. The properties would look infinitely better.
