Default How about a fun thread....What do you...

After picking all of our upgrades and being finally done that process. I sit here waiting on pins and needles to see how everything looks.

So why not start a fun thread...for things have been kind of serious around here lately.

So my questions to you are......

1) What do you love most about your house?

2) What do you hate most about your house?

3) What is absolutely by far your favourite upgrade that you chose?


Anyone wanna play??

I'll play.

1) How open it is and how bright it is.
2) How bright it is ... lots of money coming for window coverings!
3) Hardwood (whether you do it before or after)... next time the stomach flu hits the kids in the middle of the night ... 10 minutes wiping up the floor instead of 2 hours cleaning the carpet!

TAG ... who's it next?

1 - I love the lot - not having anyone behind me which gives a bit more privacy and beautiful lookout!
2 - I hate the fact that i'm not moved in yet
3 - changing the layout of our laundry room - to make it bigger! let's face it, the laundry room is basically like your kitchen - it's used a lot!

1- I love the rounded windows, the front porch, the openness, all the windows for natural light, my 72x42 soaker tub. I can go on. It's my dream house

2- I hate that there's siding. Wish it was all brick, stucco, etc..

3- My (hopefully) 30k kitchen (includes 9 foot ceilings).

Yay, a fun thread!

1) I love the layout and open concept of my home!!
2) I hate that there's so much dust and cat hair visible on my hardwood...love the light and hardwood though!
3) My favourite upgrade has to be my 72"x42" whirlpool tub and bath oasis by far!!! And the 9' ceilings...

1) Door to the garage & the whirlpool soaker tub - convenience & luxury
2) Dust & dog hair on my dark hardwood - have to sweep/vacuum all the time
3) Fireplace in family room - great on a cold night

1) The floorplan. The Baycliffe seems to make great use of the space at the right price.
2) delays...
3) Dark Cabinets in the upgraded Chef's Kitchen with valance lighting and 9 foot celings.

The open to above living room

2) What do you hate most about your house?
The back splash, which with any luck should be replaced soon... I don't HATE it though.

3) What is absolutely by far your favourite upgrade that you chose?
It's hard to pick just one! I'm VERY happy with our hardwood, LG Candy Apple Red Tromm washer & dryer, the waterfall jetted bath tub, the vessel sinks and the cabinet stain.


Anyone wanna play??
More questions!
