A faux 'faux chimney'569 viewsCingular's faux chimney on the front of a real estate office is lacking the adequate coverage required to truly consider this to be a camouflaged site. Notice the interesting (read: "ugly") cable entry box, and the fact that the panel antenna protrudes above the level of the faux chimney. Not a good design.
