Oh heck yes. There are lots of houses that seem like nice places to live, and look just fine, but trying to draw them is frustrating because the house does not lend itself to being captured in a nice 2-D scene. I guess I shouldn't be more specific for fear of offending the home owners if they come across this post somehow, but a house can look OK in real life, but be an ugly thing to draw. There was one large, modern house I drew that had all kinds of weird angles and protruding glass windows; plus it was on top of a hill, and trying to get decent reference photos was a complete pain because everyplace I could stand forced me to look upwards at the house.
