I don't know they both look straight to me 😉. I do like the windows on both though smile

Maybe a better description would be many straight parts joined at crooked angles. smile Back in the Midlands I used to go to a pub that famously over many years subsided due to mining works down below. Over the years repairs and changes to straighten parts left it looking even more twisted. Inside it was quite disorientating and there was a special trick once you adjusted to the differing levels, whereby you would place a coin edge on, balanced on wooden panelling along the wall and the coin actually appeared to roll up hill. And you didn't need a few drinks first either.
