Google Maps of Our House

I sometimes check to see if the Google Maps image of our house has changed. Recently I saw the Google Maps guy riding a bike around the UCD campus taking street view pictures...and it reminded me to check out our house. While our street view image hasn't changed since the summer of 2007, the "satellite" picture has at least three times. (They aren't really satellite pictures in Google Maps, apparently they are taken by airplane by an outside company and then sold to Google.)

I'm able to date the pictures based on the season and what projects have/haven't happened yet (after checking my blog posts to find the exact dates of those projects!). You can click on the image below to see the annotations I added under each picture.

Pretty cool! I'm not sure if I've ever seen a triangular lot before your house - strange planning on the contractor's part :D You guys sure make it work though!!!
