Here are the real reasons
Yes, the house I'm in is beautiful. There's no doubt about it. But what makes it really killer is that there are parts that are totally unfinished! Full of possibility! Something I could really get into....know what I mean?
So there's this giant room above the living room that is sort of like a barn. In an awesome way. And right now there's just random stuff stored in there and then a little bed for when my uncle visits. I mean seriously, how many awesome things could you do with this space?
And then, the real piece de resistance, is what I've been calling the nest. It's up on the third floor with vaulted ceilings, skylights and just enough room to have a nice big desk along the wall, a bedroom and a bathroom. the place is flooded with light all the time and has a KILLER view.
Here's a kind of confusing collage of the space:
And then as an aside, just wanted to noted how freaking cool my grandmother is. Not only does she lounge in an Eames Lounger that she's had for years and years, but she has so much cool furniture that her ghost chair and rad fan/flower lamp are just sitting in the big room being stored:
