SIDES:

LIA HADDOCK: (V.O.) To say these houses were pristine images of the past would not be accurate, however. Animals and intruders alike had certainly taken their shots before the lockdown of the site. But the most noticeable thing, and the most difficult thing to ignore--

TERRY HILKINS: The smell, right?

LIA HADDOCK: What is that?

TERRY HILKINS: It's dry rot. All the living quarter houses have them.

LIA HADDOCK: Is that due to the abandonment, or...

TERRY HILKINS: That's a part of it, yes. But the full answer is actually pretty silly. The designer of this city was given a pretty healthy budget to work with, and as you've noticed, wanted the... American ideal. That meant constructing this town of beautiful, well-built homes, made of the best materials. They genuinely did not skimp on that end of things. However, in doing all this--for whatever reason--they forgot to put kick-out flashing on the gutters. Kick-out flashing is just a simple attachment placed where the gutter meets the wall of a house to prevent the water from running down the wall and into the siding. A simple oversight. But every time it rained, water would feed right into the walls. Dry rot is a misnomer -- it comes from wet conditions and then, if left untreated, spreads like cancer. Contractors refer to it as such. While the people lived here, I'm sure not many of them noticed. Not enough time to. But over the years since, all these houses have become just riddled with it. These beautiful, pieces of the American dream, just... Rotting from the inside out. It's the damnedest thing, all of these brilliant minds, all of these geniuses of industry, the future, the future... A better writer than me would make something of that.

LIA HADDOCK: That's Limetown.

TERRY HILKINS: That's Limetown. Yes.
