Even though the resident enjoys living in a vibrant pink home, not everyone approves of the paint job.
A person’s life is changed significantly when they purchase a home. It implies that you have a space to transform into a home whatever you wish.
Whether it’s grilling in the cold, placing some lawn flamingos, or painting their house any color they want (as long as there isn’t a HOA, of course), whatever someone does in their home is their business alone.
Would you continue do it, though, if you knew it truly irritated your neighbors?
Imagine taking a typical walk around your neighborhood and seeing only browns and greys painted on the houses until coming across one that is completely painted in pink, including the walls, doors, gutters, roof, and even the Pepto-Bismol-colored medicine. Would that annoy you?
The one-story house was purchased by Emilio Rodriguez in November 2018.
The man in a wheelchair was disabled in an accident when he was four years old, and he has had heart issues ever since. Pink has thus always made his day happier in his eyes.
According to Rodriguez, who has it tattooed on his body and neck, “just my favorite color.”
At the back of his home, Emilio began painting; today, every square inch, from the walls to the gutters, is bubblegum-colored. or Pepto-Bismol, to use Emilio’s terms.
Emilio claims he’s contributing to the effort to “keep Austin odd,” as the locals of the city like to say.
Although Austin is known for being more progressive than the rest of Texas, some of the neighbors appear to think that painting one’s entire house pink is inappropriate.
Emilio declared, “I love this house. I don’t know why people don’t like it; a lot of people enjoy it.”
The Austin resident also intended to paint his wheelchair and driveway pink.
Emilio completed his research to make sure his pink house would be completely legal before pursuing his ambition of owning one.
The owner made sure there was no homeowner’s association covering the property.
“I’m already grandfathered in, so even if they established a HOA right here, we’re good. I performed my research in advance.”
However, the neighbors’ annoyance continues unabated. They have only one option, which is to file a lawsuit, to resolve the issue.
Even while painting a house a strange hue might seem strange, it’s not necessarily a bad idea.
The world could use more color right now with everything that has occurred over the last few years. Only those who contribute to the world’s brightness and vibrancy can truly define it.
Emilio Rodriguez had a straightforward dream that he accomplished. Even though not everyone agrees, he is at least content to live in his “pink palace,” as he puts it.
