We don't live in a "dream home" just a small modest bungalow that still has a 1970s kitchen. But for people whose main hobbies are gardening, or tinkering with stuff, car repair, motor bikes, woodworking, etc., it's all pretty difficult to do in a condo or townhouse even. So are our hobbies now to be vilified as well? My husband has an awful lot of woodworking tools and made a lot of our furniture. Guess we are evil.
I think all of my British relatives also live in houses, some of them a lot larger and better kitted out than ours!
This made me think about getting a bungalow, so I could tinker and work on stuff again... Those were good hobbies and times...
I'm having a nightmare of a time finding a condo that's got enough space to simply store my hobby tools and materials, let alone anywhere to use them.
I think the condo lifestyle is more appealing to the sort of folks who enjoy every night out on the town and just need a place to hang their hat at the end of the day and 'Netflix and chill' on the weekends (just not in a wood framed condo, that's really not what the neighbors need to hear...)
This made me want to stay in my condo... LOL
