When I was growing up our next door neighbors had an in ground pool. We didn’t really know them at all so I never got to go in it. Then later after all the kids had moved out they filled it in stopped using that part of their yard. They eventually split the property and sold off that half. Now there’s a house there. There’s a lot of that in this town now. Many side yards or back yards that didn’t seem large enough to hold a house now have one. And the new house is usually twice the size of the one next to it. There are a few places where someone bought 2 houses, knocked them both down and built a new big house in the center of the 2 old plots. That would actually be kind of cool if I could do that with my current house and the one next to it.
