I like these both...but I do have to admit to wanting to drive over to the bottom house and design a landscape plan for them. Maybe some edibles and a fun lavendar hedge? :)

One day one day could you give me a peep through a window? I love your houses, your colours, your composition, the whispers of stories and secret lives.

I just love your houses. Little boxes on the hillside. They're happy houses, and are filled with happy people. That's what I believe, and I'm sticking to it. I'd like to write stories about the people who live in your houses.

The blue one has a raised lower level to accomodate a rental unit suh-weet!

A cute widdle house like that in Vancouver would cost $497,999 and about $49,700 in Whateverpeg...
except that you wouldn't rent out the basement suite here because it would be your rec room.

hint hint..

I so like your houses. You've made something 'ordinary' (the bottom one) interesting and quirky.

A fun challenge, I'll try my house which is quite bland......this will be fun.

I like these, and you know I'm kind of preoccupied with houses right now.

Angela and Cream and Rachel and Toni: thanks!

HMBT: I thought of adding soemthing more decorative but it really was one of those city bungalows with a whole lot of nothing out front.

Zooms: Oo -- you're giving me ideas now!

Melody: There are a lot of those houses from the early part of the 20th C in Vancouver. I want to live in them all!

Jan: I can live with sweet but oh God! Not cute! :)

Ian and KJ: And I'll read them!

HE: Oh you poor deluded man. Those houses, on Vancouver's west side, would be twice that! And at least $150K more on the east side. My soulless, 1969 bunglow in an undesirable suburb is worth $479K. Winterpeg here I come.

Paula: I'm glad you can see that. It's so much less charming than the blue one but there's a kind of quirky '50s design that I love about it.

CS: You are -- and I love seeing how it unravels.

How can that be? They aren't worth that much..those are imaginary numbers..

especially in a place that could be engulfed by a tsunami and swallowed by an earthquake any minute. They should be paying people to live there.

Your house insurance must be the same as NASA's policy on the Space Shuttles. Get out now..atleast move to Golden, it's nice and high!

HE: You're right. It's the little patch of dirt that's (apparently) worth that much. The house is disposable (and often ends up that way). Some of my paintings are going to Invermere -- that's almost as good.

Beautiful little gems. Your use of color is great.

Your houses are so darned charming! I tend to prefer the green house, maybe because it's my favorite color! But I also love the way you used red to punch it up a bit and it seems to vibrate.

Lovely!
