I actually really liked the interior! Why not have a weird, quirky house on the outside that is actually cozy and functional inside? I laughed when he said there was no oven though...doesn't want too many Hansel & Gretel vibes I guess!
The stair and bedroom sights reminds me of my old house granpa in Pengalengan, Indonesia. Not as tidy as this house, but has the same vibe and sparks emotional feeling after watch this video. All woods material and narrow rooftop.
Oh I miss my granpa's old house. Too bad he renovated the house into modern style.
I loved it a lot at first but then at the end I was sort of sick of it. It got too much for my eyes. The inside, while functional, was a let down. No wicked witch sitting on the couch for a start. Yeah it’s ok. Weird that no oven but a huge fridge..!!? Maybe you can get Uber Eats on Victoria Island.
+islandbee you are clutching at straws for a comments win. I'll happily hand it to you. Although, I would like to see one Chinese worker Steve Jobs made rich! Only Americans made wealth as a minority of the work force.
+Animus Miles-Militis - He made both investors and employees rich. The guys who built are probably doing other projects and moved on. And by the looks of it, the cottage is on small island. It would be hard to convince me, if I were them to make the effort to make it there. Unless, my motivation meant more PR for me as a builder.
+Animus Miles-Militis - But, you just said "this dude did nothing other than sign a cheque book." He does mention the two guys who created the house in the video.
I don't know how much credit you need to give anyone, when Steve Jobs made the other contributors to Apple rich from his ideas.
It's just too artificially cute to me. I know a lot of old peasant house in Europe and their magic comes from the simplicity of the people that build them. But here we see someone who builds e.g. an asymmettrical roof - not because he has no tools to build a correct one but because he wants to be cute - and this is just infantile to me.
I think if he had closed in the upstairs floor instead of having it be able to see downstairs he could have had plenty of storage space. You can get a convection oven and you can cook. Other than that it’s cute but not for the price. Tiny living is to help keep your budget down with that price I could have a three bedroom three bath townhouse. Oh..like I do now for under $150,000
They really do. And most people are afraid to put down their shoes because their feet and socks smell. It took me 10 years to live in Ireland to understand why. Its because its freezing and cold floors as no proper heating systems.
That cabin is beautiful and as usual Bryce did a great job keeping the interview lively and asking the right questions, letting the owner add important details that add to the character of the build. Great job filming as well :) Thanks for showing such an interesting home!
as charming as it looks, its totally impractical. aside from in the kitchen, there´s zero storage. this was clearly meant to be for short-term stays. a whimsical weekend getaway for the guy who has everything....
I love idiosyncratic and asymmetrical houses, and this one fits the location perfectly (on the outside). I also understand putting in extra effort initially usually results in something longer lasting down the track... But I'm wondering how functional that wooden roof is. Wouldn't it be a lot of work to keep it from rotting?
omg. this so perfect. wow wow wow.. this is heaven the view the cottage omg. i know i cant own this kind of property, i am so happy to see people happy living it. he has a very long life living such a heavenly place. wow wow wow. i am happy for him, from the buttom my heart...
To isolate the mobilization-induced labor supply shift, the authors exploit the fact that the fraction of males serving in the war was not uniform across states. For example, in Massachusetts, Oregon, and Utah, almost 55 percent of males between the ages of 18 and 44 left civilian work to serve in the war. In Georgia, the Dakotas, and the Carolinas, this number ranged between 40 and 45 percent. The state differences in war mobilization actually reflect a variety of factors. The Selective Services guidelines for deferments were based on marital status, fatherhood, essential skills for civilian war production, and temporary medical disabilities, but left considerable discretion to the local boards. Because of the importance of maintaining a strong food supply to support the war, an important consideration for deferment was farm employment.
States with a high percentage of farmers had substantially lower mobilization rates, and this explains a considerable share of the state variation in mobilization rates.
The authors show that in states with greater war mobilization of men, women worked more after the war and in 1950, but not in 1940. This differential does not appear to be explained by other cross-state differences or possible demand factors, and is not present in the 1940 data nor does a similar trend recur in the decade of the 1950s. The authors interpret these differentials as labor supply shifts induced by the War. Acemoglu, Autor, and Lyle believe these cross-state changes in female employment were caused by greater participation of women during the war years, with some of those women staying on. War changed womens preferences, opportunities, and information about available work.
