Before I show you some photos I just would like to set one record straight: when I was telling yous about my mad boomerang shaped house I certainly wasn't crying 'poor me'! I like it, and it likes me. I am very far from the poverty line here and although modern places would be more into the 21C convenience-wise, thousands of people in Ireland live in old-fashioned hoosie-homes like this, both in rural areas and in older sections of any settlement/ village/town/city. We rented a similar place in the country for seven years while we were getting our own place- even the carpet here is the same as it except brown instead of blue, the girls were highly entertained!
Bah! I can't get these into the correct order...
|Kitchen, nice size, bright, NO HEAT!|
|Sunset over the yard- there's an old orchard beyond the shed,|
no access but lovely to look out on trees in the middle of town.
|Sitting room, less than 9foot wide so this photo is deceptive. |
Note the fab 1970s carpet and fireplace?!
|My Christmas cacti survived the move and are perfectly happy!|
|Much MUCH more virulent shade of turquoise in reality!|
Raggedy Ann hides a huge carpet hote I kept tripping on...
|Upstairs landing- stairs not steep at all, but all very narrow.|
And there you have it- the wee boomerang hoosie!
