I will catch you up with our night out at the Art Gallery tomorrow.
Today we will talk about houses.
This week's home of the week, is a $2.2 Million semi; excuse me did I say a semi, for that money I want a detached house!! Now this house may look Victorian from the front, but wait until you see what they did to the inside. I am sitting here with my mouth open and the question WHY??? running through my head. Suffice to say you couldn't pay me to live in this place with what they have done inside, How on earth they got planning permission for the back facade boggles my mind!
Now the condo of the week is a delightful $1.7 Million; where do they get these prices from??? Plus you're spending over $1,300 a month on maintenance fees? After through the photos I see you are paying for the view over the lake (Ontario). Still way over priced for a 2 bedroom and I agree with the one comment, no curb appeal for me either.
I got this article in my inbox also, about off the grid homes. I had a look through the photos and must say I was impressed with some of them. 1, 5, 8, 15, 18, & 25, are ones I would love to live in, just by the looks of them. Living off grid seems like a great idea, especially with the cost of utilities rising all the time, but not sure if that is a feasible thing at our time of life?
We have all see yellow school buses on the roads; well in North America we have. Never thought though of turning one into a cabin. I love what this couple have done to their yellow school bus; as not only is it cosy, it's functional and bright too. See more here
Finally, I am not happy with my baby blanket I am knitting, so I am pulling it all out and starting again. I have mulled this over for a few days and the way it looks at the moment, I wouldn't want to give it to anyone.
To cheer me up I am knitting a dishcloth:
