The good news: You’re upgrading your home! The potential downside? You might be downgrading your neighbors’ quality of life in the process. Sadly, not every home or yard improvement you embark upon is a boon for all the people who live around you.
Think of it this way: It’s a personal choice to buy into the mom jeans trend or rock a man bun. But what about everyone else who has to see you?
There are a few home improvement projects that, while certainly well-intentioned, are likely to make your neighbors cringe. We’re not saying you should skip them altogether, but if you take on one of these upgrades, make sure to do it in a way that won’t make you that guy. You’re on your own with the whole man bun thing, though.
