    Oh my god Liiya, marry me

    Here's a photo with the kitchen counter. I have now switched the sofa and loveseat and am still not sure what to do with the space

    Well I LIKED my apartment until I saw that Lost Salient has a fireplace and kitchen counter space

    Hmm that is a tricky space!

    One day I will have my own place, and it will be great. Who knows where it will be!

    Actually today I am taking the opportunity to play a round of "Does this fake electric fireplace still work?" in between bouts of moving furniture

    Come on over, everyone can have a turn!

    (I love my kitchen counter space)

    I walked through the fancy real-estate agent listing in Truro today. Woo-ee, house prices here are ridonk.

    oh whoa there is a thread for this!
    I will have to post when I get done but basically my apartment is like the 13th and a half floor from Being John Malkovich and I have been trying to reorganize/make it look rad and stuff

    I just set up my hi-fi finally after nearly two years and I was feeling all cool about it til I saw how nice everyone else is all set up

    Is that because they're all old and badly insulated

    tynic
  • tynictynic PICNIC BADASS Registered User, ClubPA regular
    Yes, that adds a premium here.

    no but seriously 550k for a four bedroom 70s brick bungalow seems OTT to me, given the nearest city is over an hour away.
    I dunno, maybe it comes with a secret unicorn stash or something.

    Londoners, mainly.

    That would be so amazing awkward.

    It's the camera feature on the website, which I did not move.

    Liiya your plan would be totally awesome, only that "wall" where the TV is is actually not a wall but the wraparound kitchen counter! You can kind of see it in the first photograph - it's um, that bottle of 409 is the corner, and then the counter takes a right turn and continues all the way down before it turns into an actual real wall. We maybe could try the TV there anyway but I feel like people in the kitchen would get whiny at not seeing/people walking around the kitchen drunk would bash into it.

    Which is a shame cause otherwise that's like, the most workable plan I've seen or arranged.

    Chromdom the TV would fit on the north-south wall (that's not actually how the apartment is oriented obviously but we'll roll with it for ease of communication) between the hallway entrance and the fireplace, but orienting the sofa parallel to it against the wall means it'd be... like at best where the green loveseat is in the photo above, which is pretty far away for actual television watching purposes. OR it'd be close enough to actively watch TV but then there's a huge empty nothingness-space between the back of the sofa and the far wall.

    It's like the most giant, awkwardly-arranged space.

    Yeah, you're going to use the couch to cut the big awkward space into two semi-separated spaces. Couch + loveseat and coffee table aimed to seat groups comfortably, enjoying the fire and/or tv. Even better if you can put a low bookcase or something behind the couch, to really draw a dividing line between the two areas.
    Then behind that, in a smaller space, a chair or reading area by the window, maybe a little end table for enjoying a drink looking out the window.

    New out of context sig?

    Hmm. I actually don't hate that idea at all. My reading nook was my favorite room in my last apartment. But at the moment I don't own a chair or a low bookshelf, so I think for now I'd prefer to have a united area where people in the kitchen can talk to people in the living area.

    I'm designing the best house!

    I'm basically going for LEED Gold (or platinum if I can swing it)

    Geothermal, proper dimensions, recycled flooring, salvaged materials, proper native landscaping with a strong focus on rain gardens and plantings that feed native species.

    It's so much fun

    probably won't ever get built, but a man can dream!

    Man I'm jealous. I have worked in architecture for 5 years now and every single project has started with something along the lines of "we want to do a leed type of project, but without the certification"

    Followed by anything green getting value engineered away within minutes of construction bidding.

    Stay with it and don't give up

    That should really read as: "We want to be able to convince ourselves we did something good when in reality we're just typical developers trying to squeeze every last cent of profit out of a project."

    I've been in the business 13 years now

    I can't think of a single project I've done where the green stuff wasn't tossed the second VEing rears its ugly head.

    I really hope my dream house gets built one day.

    the cool thing is that I have an architecture firm, a licensed contractor, and a custom steel shop all ready and willing to help me out =)

    Yep, 1 bedroom. That picture was taken from the kitchen.

    We were sick of cheap college apartments, so we moved into something nice.

    We must have looked at 50 different places before we decided on this one. I'm happy with how it turned out, the lady is a good decorator.

    i dont have any photos of my own house on my new iphone

    however on the subject of cribs, it came to my attention last week that one of the houses on my fiances side of the family was photographed by a professional and sold as decorative art at Bed Bath and Beyond for $200

    apparently you can do this without telling who you are taking the picture of

    anyway I thought it was funny because their property is comedically huge and for it to be the subject of landscape photography is icing on the cake
