Me playing with girlfriends hair thingies and breaking them has probably been a contributing factor to at least one break up, possibly more.

Check your washing machine pump/filter. You will find bobby pins everywhere (more than usually found randomly all over the house)

These are usually a toolbox with some wire left sticking out and holes patched with duct tape some contractor forgot about somewhere or is too embarrassed to say excuse me that "bomb" is my toolbox. They get the bomb robot to take it out to a field and blow it up and quietly wrap it all up that there was no bomb materials inside and they just blew up a toolbox.

We need more real estate developers like that dude, I love houses from around 1900 and wish new buildings would look similar to them instead of these horrible, boring cubes that look the same everywhere they're built.



This is literally every new apartment building in my city, they are sterile as gently caress and you seem them all around the continent.

I think part of the draw is the rent control. I may be wrong about how ubiquitous it is in prewar buildings though.

15 years? In what kind of utopia are you living where thst is achievable? Here it's around 30 years, it's bonkers.

Also I obviously mean apartments that look old but are made with modern materials and technology. Just no more mute colored cubes, please.

That's not brutalism. Brutalist architecture is designed to last, and ideally look good a decade or two on as it's aged and gathered some plant life.

Pumping out super cheap condos using the cheapest available materials that will fall apart in 10 years because the builder is a corp number that won't exist after the last sale is complete is 100% definitely what brutslism was and is.

Oh - so you don't actually mean "brutalist" at all. Not everything using béton brut is brutalist; Brutalism is a deliberate aesthetic choice, and doesn't just mean "functional but ugly".

e: For what it's worth, Stalinist architecture was largely constructivist and a particularly Russian flavor of neoclassical revival.

I live in a 100 year old Craftsman house and I love it. This house was built with amazingly robust materials and will easily last another 100 years.

That being said, it has literally experienced multiple major depressions, both from a national and local perspective, and has had occupants of various levels of SES. This means that the most expensive things get put off the moat/longest and also there have been various levels of expertise on repairs.

The catch-22 to an old house like this is the 15k you need to put into repairing the slate roof, the 5k to refinish the oak or heartwood pine floors, the $500 to repair the plaster and lathe in just one of the rooms, and the whatever you have to do to replace (and in many cases you will find: hide) the knob and tube electrical work so you can insure the house.

But that ROI tho...man when you fix em up even a little bit they are a pretty penny.
