Who wants a big house?

My mother always says that even if she was given a huge mansion, she wouldn't want to live in it because there would be too much cleaning to do. Sometimes I think that way but then again, if you could afford a house like that, I'm sure you'd be able to have people do the cleaning for you.

So, would I want to live in a big house? YES! At least for a short while so that I can comment on whether or not its all that fun.

The house that we live in now is spacious and has more than enough room for us but as I walk around the neighborhood, I can't help imagining what the inside of some of these houses are like.

The area we live in is fairly old and the original houses here all have some problem or other. Instead of fixing these problems, many of these houses are being torn down and new gigantic houses are being built in their place. Unfortunately, they're all built in such a way that its impossible for me to catch a glimpse inside. Damn! I need to make friends with some of these people also never see them.

Anyway, its fun to imagine what a big house is like. Here are some photos of them. I'm just not good enough a photographer to show how much bigger they are to the original houses in the area.

Here is the house that I blogged about last year when the construction was just starting.

And here are a couple off the other newly completed constructions.

Hello !

Ne serait-ce pas "La Maison Blanche" de Georges. W. Bush ???

I love the idea of a big house, as long as someone else can do the cleaning. I grew up in a fairly small home with three brothers and sisters, and always dreamed of SPACE. Nowadays, I love stopping at new construction sites and touring the huge model homes and imagining myself living in one. With a support staff, of course.

The bigger the house the more stuff you accumulate. And after 32 years in a 2200 square foot house with a full basement, that's a lot of STUFF.
