My House

When I was a kid, we used to have fun with the children of American tourists, telling them we lived in igloos in the winter and went to school on dog sleds. Oh, they were so gullible! We would stretch the story as far as they would let us. Afterwards, when they told their parents how rough we had it, they were probably told to stay away from those wacky Canadian children! At any rate, this is my house, a fully insulated Canadian igloo, and if I don't get off the internet and get busy, I'll never be able to keep as clean as it is here.

What a beautiful home PG!
Is this the one your selling?

You have a lovely house! I see a bow-wow at the foot of the steps too - sweet! The living room betrays it as a woman's house...the drapes. It is very nice though. You are a lovely lady, through and through. Thanks for letting us into your private domain. :)

On your other post - I used to live in Boston - wish you had more time to see it.

Angela, we have pine ceilings throughout the whole house. I really prefer the natural look of wood.

Karin, yes this house is the one that's for sale.

Terry, that's my collie dog, Sal! She's really smart. We actually built this house ourselves, without using any contractors, and I planned the interior decorating. I guess that's why it looks feminine!

Houses are tiny in this country.

i don't know where your from benedicat, but we do have some pretty large type houses here, and they are more than enough for any family. perhaps we don't need as much space as you do. but trust me, our houses are quite large. ( and expensive )

Nice staircase.

Nice grass, I thought you just had ice and rocks up there.

I love your igloo!

Did the dog come with it or did you have to provide your own?

A home is just not a home without a dog curled up on the rug near the door. I guess that goes for igloos, too.
