The layout is very nice in some ways but it definitely isn't a family sort of home, for all its three bedrooms. Also, I've lived in LA. The dust and insects at certain times of the year would be a definite maintenance problem.

Actually, Jobs comments in the late 90's are just as, if not more, pertinent now. I live in Israel and absolutely love my Bauknecht (Italian despite the name) washer and White-Westinghouse dryer (English). So it takes a bit longer to wash but the trade-off in cleaner clothes, less wasted water (which is heated in the washing machine to exactly the temperature needed, another savings), less wear and tear on my clothes makes the extra bit of planning worthwhile. Despite the small footprint (they stack), its a 7/5 kilo size which is as much as a standard machine in the US but they are still light enough for me to move them out to clean. And I don't have the servicing headaches of my friends who insisted on buying expensive, wasteful Maytags and the like(which also required them to remove doors and semi-dismantle the machine to get them into their laundry rooms).

Cute but with that ceiling reminds me too much that the original need for the canopy was to keep all sorts of unpleasant things from falling on your head while you slept.

I see plenty of perfectly good wallspace in that kitchen for a solidly mounted shelf. Why is it taking up table space? Or cabinet space? And yes, you CAN get along without a microwave but sometimes I chose not to as I live in a rather hot climate and anything that doesn't heat up my home(I also love my crockpot, same reason)gets my vote.
