Investment brokers, corporate lawyers, business majors and BMW drivers; we all have those in our circle of friends who tend to lean to the right, socially and politically.

Thankfully, our right-leaning friends can move into a house that ALSO leans a bit to the right. Much like its future owners, decades of experience and living in a mixed community have caused its right leanings, but our little duplex has been deemed to be solid and strong despite its right wing tendencies.
