By Perfect Blue Go To PostIt takes a special type of person to be able to handle this range in weather change, going from -30 to +30 is not for everyone. I suspect I have another 10 years of putting up with this before I figure out a 6 month in Canada / 6 month in somewhere warm - I have to.
Our weather really is nuts. -30 in the winter to +30 and above in the summer. With high humidity.
On topic, I'm seeing a lot of homes being renovated using black panelling on the exterior (I don't know what the exact name/term is). In the past going full brick was the way to go, but more and more the black panels are what's being put - I suspect they're cost effective and they look super nice.
Here is an example:
I'm also seeing a comback in the use of concrete (in place of the black panels above) being used instead of bricks all around to cover the exterior. It's so damn nice.
I love design.
Wow that looks way better than the shit you can get here for that prices which is like only ugly ass McMansions.
Feel like a house bigger than a certain size just starts looking grotesque in some form no matter what.
I just feel like nearly every part of a home should feel like its own thing, your living room, bedrooms, lounge etc should their own distinct space not look like an open plan IKEA show-floor.

I think there's happy mediums. I like a kitchen that looks onto a living space and isn't a cubicle unto itself. That can feel pretty claustrophobic. Also prefer homes you can get to rooms via more than one direction. Homes where you just get stuck in the back are weird.
By reilo Go To PostDon't necessarily love the black outside paneling but otherwise the interior and layout isDidn't know they were doing a remake of Clockwork Orange.
By Perfect Blue Go To PostI mostly agree with it however I too need my kitchen to be sequestered within walls.
Because entertaining people and enjoying Sunday breakfast is 100x easier with an open floor plan / great room concept.

Bedrooms, laundry rooms and bathrooms are the only things that really need walls.
Because a lack of walls makes a smaller space feel and perform larger.

Edit: I actually came to post how frustrating kids are when it comes to my Interior design. My wife and I can make the space nice, but all our furniture is hand me downs or target specials. Kids fuck up furniture. Also kids REALLY fuck uo flat paint on walls
I'm so addicted to these Architectural Digest vids just to see what rich people have cool houses and which folks just let somebody throw some expensive shit together.

Though, it seems youre only paying for the views.
Kitchen would be better if one wall was blown out so at least a side was open (sort of like a bar) to the next room. IMO of course. At some point spaces are large enough this doesn’t matter, but that kitchen was super narrow and feltt kinda closed off.

This is a really good article.

Even parts of Asia do it well with density and bikes everywhere.
