House painters and interior design mags convince people to do all kinds of stupid shit, often because it costs more and/or will seem tired in a few years. Painters convinced us to do a stupid-looking two-tone thing in our eat-in kitchen that I really regret. Walls really don't need to be two colors.

I've tried to understand what's going on with Australian real estate, but it's hopeless.

For example, in the States, you hold an auction only if it's a foreclosure or it's a shitty property that no one wants. Apparently down there, it's the opposite - you take the photos and show your home, then wait for the big auction day where you'll likely get more than you asked for.

(Well, in Sydney, at least.)

pplains, Tuesday, 22 December 2015 03:22 (six years ago) link

Yeah sale by auction is something that crept in maybe 15-20 years back and seems ubiquitous now. And its precisely so they can make as much money as possible (a la ebay auctions I guess). I've been priced completely out of home ownership because I need $80k just for the *downpayment* and I just cannot get that sort of money together. Its insane.

You don't like that it ends at a point?

Look! You get that nifty little reading nook because of it. If it was flat, the nook would directly face the rest of the room.

pplains, Tuesday, 5 April 2016 16:06 (six years ago) link

IDK why it annoys me so much, partly just because it's so narrow compared to typical apartments in my neighborhood, which are mostly very spacious due to having been built in the 40s/50s. The point is awkward to me though, like it doesn't really look comfy as a nook, but it also doesn't interact with the rest of the room.

Cursed architecture

calstars, Saturday, 18 June 2022 15:00 (two months ago) link

Industrial architecture! I'm thinking grain elevator or cotton mill or something like that. The gable-roofed volumes do read as "house" (or "church" looking at the main, basilica-like volume)... but I suspect they're all the way they are for essentially functional reasons. The resulting composition is obviously fabulous though, with the 'houses' telescoping out of each other.

lots of these types of buildings around here but for coal, not grain. they're huge. definitely nightmarish.

i grew up near a big steel mill and those structures were also huge and evil-looking.

the cat needs to start paying for its own cbd (map), Saturday, 18 June 2022 21:23 (two months ago) link

the steel mill was torn down 15 years ago to be redeveloped into single family real estate.

there's a certain way the mormon realtors around here say "home" - always "home", never "house" - where the 'oh' and the 'm' combine to have this sedative, cocoon-like effect, it's pretty remarkable.

the cat needs to start paying for its own cbd (map), Saturday, 18 June 2022 21:28 (two months ago) link

this has actually made me think more about the building because you always drive by them not thinking about the design. of course a lot of them are a simpler metal structure but the house glued to another house glued to a church is pretty interesting. still the ladder and chute gives me "you can die on the job" vibes and i shudder.
