Man’s Pepto-Bismol Pink Dream House Causes a Stir Among Neighbors

Troublesome Neighbors or Unique Expression?

It’s every homeowner’s fear that they will end up with troublesome neighbors. But what happens if your neighbor changes their house so much it becomes hard to look at? This is the case for residents in an Austin, Texas suburb where one man has painted his house a bright Pepto-Bismol pink, causing a stir among the locals.

No HOA, No Problem

Most U.S. neighborhoods have a Homeowners Association (HOA). HOAs help keep houses looking consistent and can also help pay for community conveniences. However, resident Emilio Rodriguez bought his house in Pflugerville, Texas specifically because it doesn’t have an HOA. This allowed him to fulfill his dream of painting everything pink, a decision that is causing some problems with his neighbors.


Emilio’s Pink Dream

Emilio, who bought his house when it was beige, has transformed it into his favorite color: Pepto-Bismol pink. “I love this house. I don’t know why people don’t like it,” Emilio told CBS17. He has plans to paint more parts of his home pink, much to the dismay of his neighbors.

Neighbors’ Concerns

The neighbors are upset about the pink house. They are worried that it will bring down property values in the area. Despite this, Emilio, who is wheelchair-bound after a car accident and several health issues, says the color of his house makes him happy. He also believes the color helps maintain the “Keep Austin Weird” vibe, a popular motto in the city.

A Unique Perspective

What do you think about the color of Emilio’s house? Personally, I think you have to learn to love your neighbor and use this house as an easy fix for your friends, delivery people, etc. to find your house. We once had a neighbor whose house was this color. We loved her, and she was one of the best neighbors we ever had. You will get used to it.
