love it hate it weather

In the following picture, we see that nature is trying to tell us something we already know...
All we have seen is *snow* this winter. Winter '09-'10 in the record books for Richmond...
The cold. Scrapping ice off your car. Shoveling a lot. Trying to get around (there was a 50 car pile up on 64 near Williamsburg yesterday morning). Despite all the bad, everyone shouldn't let it get them down. It can be very beautiful...
 

and its unique amounts to the area can allow for more exciting, spacious opportunities for many...

Yep. I have been nice enough to share my lovely addition of my home with whoever is interested. The complete craigslist post can be viewed by clicking the above image, or here.


Play with the snow.

if you have more than one floor

STAIRs.
Screw elevators. Their music always sucks anyway, plus the whole health thing. For a while stairs were seen as generic, but now many have discovered that they can be designed to be very cool and innovative; fun, beautiful, multi-purpose/ extremely functional, futuristic, seem to deny the laws of physics- just so long as they serve their basic function of allowing somebody to go up or down. Why not utilize your living space? why not make them cool?
there's bound to be more awesome designs than these:
skateboard steps 
 
 
  
  

  
 
   
 
  

  
  
  
  
 
  
  
  
 
 
  
  
 
  
  
  
  
  

and, what I've always said I'm going to have in my house one day...
not stairs, but you can't leave it out.
