How would you describe your house?

A good sized loft in an historic building downtown. Absolutely no defined rooms, exposed wood beams, finished concrete floors, lots of light. Walls painted several colors and a pallette all consistent with colors in nature. A mix of old and new furnishings in a style that is most likely described as ecclectic.

Too small and cluttered to be believed.

It's modest -- about 900 square feet. Dark grey siding, awnings. Small yard in a city neighborhood. It's an old house -- over 100 years -- so I have some nice touches -- 3 tin ceilings, keystone molding and hardwood floors that need refinishing. It also needs work -- new windows, new siding, and the floors need to be refinished.

It's quite large (especially when compared to most new housing developments), clean, and very dark. There aren't many windows here.

My house could be described in a real estate ad either as a Starter Home or as a Retirement Home. The kitchen, living room and bedroom are generously sized. The utility room is a bit small. The yard/firebreak is a bit shabby but the picture each window frames is composed of woodland with frequent views of wildlife.

Physically - three-bedroom brick Cape Cod, very open layout, big kitchen, separate dining room. Den, TV room, laundry room and master bedroom all on the main floor. Full unfinished basement. Inside - the house is eclectic. My mom says it looks very much like me.

A small two bedroom apartment with sloped ceilings, and one great view.

My house is a colonial, mostly cream color with dark red trim. It's got a great deck that runs across the whole back of the house. The landscaping is okay and will be even better when I'm done putting in the gardens. It has four bedrooms, one full bath and two half-baths, a first-floor laundry, a full but unfinished basement, and an attached garage.

A comfortable, if rather vertical, townhouse.

Comfortable--it has soft carpets and high ceilings.

the actually house itself is an average 2 story house in a quiet neighborhood. outside it is a pale green with a soon to be new dark gray roof. its like 40 years old by now so repairs are being made where needed. normal front yard with flowers and bushes of course. some are exotic looking. the backyard is huge so thats cool. inside the house is mostly done in dark browns. that makes it dark and cool most of the year. very good most of the time for my tastes.

things are slowly changing to where every room will have its own theme in other colors. it should all pull together nicely. 4 bedroom 3 bath lots of closets, nice sized kitchen, family room,
den. its the house that is perfect for me to live in alone. so i am currently waiting for my parents to buy a new one so i can have this one. its now worth twice or more than what we paid for it
and that keeps going up everytime i look so maybe i should let them sell it and buy two or three more homes. i only have a say because this house was promised to me.

i will think about it. lots of memories here some unforgettable and others you wish you could forget. i would never raise my family in this house. this would be my gettaway spot. its a silent, calming place for me when no one is around and thats very often. this house is a magnet to friends and acquaintances because of the actual structure and the people in it. thats a good thing i guess.

i guess thats all. my house is a cool place to be. even when there is
