    Exclamation Housing

    i know this may be lame but i'll post it anyway.

    So at the moment i'm at work and busy with a report on housing in South Africa, actually Cape town. You can find the most awesome houses here and the shites of shit houses too.
    take me for instance, i live in a good neighbourhood but at the moment my home is really shit, i live with my parents and my dad is doing renovations, so the damn place is shit cold, and the roof leaks abit when it rains. cant wait for him to complete the damn house so i can use the living room again.

    so i pose the question to you, What type of house (flat, mansion, castle, cave etc) do you live in, and is it cool or really shit, and what type of neighbourhodd is it in.
    Dont ask me to spell anything!

    I like in an apartment, and actors and various directors are my neighbours.

    Rather large (for an apartment in Hong Kong), nicely renovated (we rented it like this), water pressure blows, however. It's difficult trying to wash yourself with dribbles and drops.

    The neighbourhood is a lot less urban than the rest of HK. Lots of trees on a quiet little hill that's privately owned by some guy who banned all public transport from coming up here, so it's quite a bit cleaner, too. 20 minutes of walking brings you to the heart of downtown and a metro station, and a bus station, which brings you more or less anywhere else. A car here is not a necessity, but a luxury.

    Lucky. Mine from the outside blends into the surrounding its just considered a normal house, except in the inside big roaches are squerm around. The 2nd floor gets so damp and sweaty in the sunny as the windows face directly the sunlight, although I like the neighbourhood as it is downtown and quiet.

    Oh, the outside of my apartment looks horribly drab. We get corrugated iron roofing to keep the rain off the cars. And my apartment is kind of built into a hill, so it has the twin effects of:
    1) Keeping the the wind and sun away so the temperature is usually quite comfortable.
    2) The only way to get down it is this ugly looking staircase. The owner tried to get around it by putting some wooden panels around the door -- and it's quite funny to look at, since this is an apartment, there's another door right to us, and the wood ends exactly halfway between the doors. Wood, whitewash.

    There are also a lot of small animals in my house. For a while, we had a bad ant problem. Leave a glass of orange juice out and 10 minutes later, there are ants everywhere. We found that their nest was in one of the air conditioners, so we put some alcohol on a cotton pad and stuck it in the hole...

    did College give you an education or did it just take away your innocence.

    I live in suburban America where every house looks the same. The extent of suburban sprawl can be seen through an overhead photo..it's insane. But it's a really nice neighborhood, I guess.

    The houses are all about 2000 sq ft and up, and the prices (as of now) are all above $600000. My house, we bought for $400000, but the property value has jumped to $800000-$900000.
    Yeah, it's expensive, but hey, the Bay Area is one of the most expensive places to live.
