House Play

Today’s home quotes aren’t about price. If anything, they demonstrate how impossible it is to quantify the value of having your own space. Most of our posts are about remodeling, and in a way, this is no exception. Why do we remodel in the first place, if not to get closer to that special place home represents? Not sure what place I’m talking about? Let the following word associations help you. At the end of the post, play along and help us add to our word list.

Home Sweet Home

CalFinder Writers on “Home”

  • “When it comes to loving your home, little things matter.” - Renee
  • “My favorite room in the house is the room where I spend a good portion of my waking hours. It is the first thing I think about in the morning, if not the first place I go, and it is my home base within my home. It is where I satisfy my cravings and where I love to work. It is my kitchen.” – Dan
  • “We’re all probably more influenced by our friends’ homes than we realize. In the process of feeling welcomed into a friend’s home, we can’t help but notice the surroundings that combine with our host’s warmth in making us feel comfortable. And it’s always interesting to see how other people create their spaces, in contrast to the way we shape our own personal environments.” – Euphrasia
  • “If you have the money, surely you would want to use it to take care of the environment, arguably even more so than the average American. I think most every American that can afford to build a home or remodel one, wants to do their best in this endeavor.” – Dela
  • “My husband and I just spent the past year remodeling our house, so I have a lot to say about the disagreements that can arise during the process. A home renovation project always entails a certain amount of stress, which can make matters worse. The saying goes “if your marriage can survive a building project, you can probably make it through anything.” – Anna
  • “Remember the Y2K scare? People were frantically stocking up on canned beans, water, and batteries. What do you think the Amish communities were doing? They were probably relaxing with their families. We can learn a lot from the Amish as they seem to be ahead of their time. The Amish have proven that energy independence works. If more of us chose the Amish way of living, we’d have more rope swings, less ipods, and free sun to run our washing machines.” – Beth
  • “Wanna buy my house? I’m offering a sweet price.” - Dean (Dean’s a little miffed about the economy right now.)
