pt.2 of the outside section.
House: Similar to the area around it. Meaning comfy, secluded, taken care or yet natural, self sustaining at times. I don't care about the size, I just want it to be precious to me.
Rooms: I'd keep it tidy and cosy, meaning that it will mostly be full of muted colours and soft/natural materials.
Just noticed the heart motif in the middle of the photo, adorable! The rain sets the mood beautifully.
It looks idyllic. Always wanted to live in a quiet forested area where I can go for walks with a large fluffy dog.
Probably an annoying question, but how do you make it happen? Is it expensive? Do you need to find remote work?
that totally depends on where you decide to get situated. e.g. it would be easier to set up such a place in a remote town in Baltics, as opposed to England due to the density of the population.
A lot of old yet comfy houses there are inherited, and quite a lot of people from that generation do not have/know their children. So waiting for them to pass and then trying to get the house. would be the most cost effective option. Not to sound heartless, of course. I knew at least 2 elderly women who had the lifestyle I wanted, even though they were not well off. Therefore, as long as you plan on taking care of the property and respecting it, said dream could come true.
At least that's what I've observed.
As for work, they all had chickens and at least one cow, so the lifestyle was semi self sustainable and they traded some of their vegetables,berries, jam etc. for other things, as well as just living in a frugal manner. + pension. I suppose one could manage to work from home, or land a comfy librarian/shop worker job.
I also knew a family who built their own house in the middle of the woods. They were old fashioned, but happy. The mother was a wedding seamstress and the father a pilot (I think). I rarely saw them, but they seemed smart and supportive of their daughter (my friend that hosted a lot of sleepovers that involved just the two of us. Super comfy and I miss being 8 lol)
Remember, this is coming from someone who's still in education(over 18, though) and has only observed random people throughout my life.
I'll update you if I manage to find a place similar to my description and then tell you my master plan.
Can't wait to be old. Can read and not worry about the future.
I am curious to hear about your master plan. Are there any mountains involved?
>>5516>Can't wait to be old.Can read and not worry about the future.
Same! That's one of the things that keeps me going haha
> Are there any mountains involved?
Yes, I'm gonna start mining and get lucky.
Since my family is poor and with little to no connections (thanks, WW2), the only plan I have at the moment is to finish my degree, save up enough money so that I can afford and fix up the place and then see how I manage. Extensive planning would take place beforehand, of course. Balancing work and personal life will be something that.
My mother just told me to marry a farmer lol
Hah I meant if there'd be mountains near the old comfy home. You could live in the mine afterwards though, so not a bad idea.
Come hang out on the irc late one evening if you want to chat.
beautiful, I love every bit of this place. Hope your dream of owning a place like this comes true
Somewhere close to the hills/mountains, maybe also a lake or stream, and certainly far from the city. A comfy old house would be nice, with a small road to the town. There would be long winters, but also have the summer bring some odd hot days as well.
ah I see, feel kind of stupid now haha
I've never lived near the mountains so I had never entertained the thought of living near one. I suppose it'd be nice to research it, as it is an uncharted territory for me at the moment. Judging from the photos, the scenery there is stunning. Probably costs a fortune, though.
I'm still new to this board and trying to learn about the place, but I most likely will check it out in the near future, thanks for the invite :D>>5522
Thank you, so do I! Your second file looks exceptionally breathtaking. Everything about it looks comfy.
ah yes, a farmers market would be nice. those strawberries look like they would make some good jam.
i also forgot to add, a small comfy greenhouse of some sort. just enough for a dozen or so plants and space for a chair or two to sit in. I miss the overwhelming smell of nature when you walk into these.
Does sushichan have their own minecraft server? I kinda want to recreate these cozy places
Seisatsu is running one. I think most of the people playing there is from Uboachan, but I know people from Sushichan play there too.>>>/arcade/512
my dream is to buy or build a cottage in the middle of nowhere in wyoming and then plant a forest around it and a small vegetable garden too
but in all likelihood I will probably just remain as a programmer in a big city for the rest of my days
What's the significance of the roof being like that? I'm confused by that.
Heaping the roof with earth helps with retaining heat, which I imagine matters a great deal in Norway.
That's assuming it's actually traditional architecture and not a modern design intended blend in with nature. Sometimes I wonder about such pictures.
No idea. It looks cool though
I would assume the ladder. I don't know much about architecture but I would think there would be a better way to heat your home nowadays.
Camouflage from bands of roving Norwegians!
I don't know much about them, but i think the weight helps keep the water proofing material in place.>>5587
Doesn't help, we have a keen eye for such things now, but it does help against romanian beggars. They have no clue where we are.
That sounds amazing sushi roll, how were you able to move to Japan in the first place?
A tiny house with a tiny garage for a motorcycle about 20 minutes ride from work. House would be self-suffucient, with water well and solar ec panels. All furniture would be wooden, plain and sturdy, made by me.
I don't have any pictures on this device, so.
Thank you for posting this video. It really does look pleasant. >>5697
Sadly UK is full of terraced and semi-detached houses, so I know exactly how you feel. The window and footstep details hit close to home.
Good luck on finding a place where you can feel secure enough to enjoy yourself and the view outside your widow!
I'd like a 1BR and livingroom/kitchenette apartment at a 30 minute subway ride from a big city. With 3 restaurants and a grocery I like within walking distance.
4 is awkward.
Too little space.
4.5 is alright if you enjoy small spaces
6 is good.
>>5794>4 is awkward.>Too little space.
I live in the equivalent of 4 or 5 right now. It is horribly cramped, and i have barely any room for anything. Just getting into my desk chair is a bit of a challenge since there is hardly any floor space next to my desk, and getting into my closets is a bit fiddly too.
