‘Flintstone’ House in California Called an ‘Eyesore’

Bright, curvy, covered in plastic dinosaurs — the so-called “Flintstone” house, in the northern California town of Hillsborough, is a beautiful, demented blob of architecture that looks unnervingly like a human spleen, and I absolutely love it. Unfortunately, this gorgeous concrete blob and its lizard-filled environs are under threat from fun-averse neighbors who have sued the home’s owner, businesswoman Florence Fang, for her recent additions, which they call an “eyesore” (??) and “out of keeping with community standards”, the Guardian reports.

The blobby house was built in the mid-1970s. It was created by spraying concrete over a wire mesh and steel frame. The home was already a popular landmark for passing drivers by the time Fang purchased it in 2017, but Fang took its décor to the next level, adding enormous dinosaur sculptures in the backyard, and a huge sign out front that says “Yabba-dabba-doo.”
