Let’s say you’re recovering from knee surgery and you meet your extended family for some R&R at a rented lakehouse in North Texas. You might expect to sleep in every day, or get a nap here and there. Take it easy for a few days while enjoying the company of your closest blood relatives. Nice, huh?
Family chemistry aside, this goal hinges upon the comforts of said lakehouse, and pictures on the Internet don’t tell the whole story. What looked like a luxurious home featuring wall-to-wall travertine, beautiful wood stairs, wood flooring throughout the upstairs, a gourmet kitchen and a gorgeous fireplace was actually a deafening tomb…a cacophonic spree.
