the entirety of the last picture looks faked/photoshopped, somehow, once you start looking at it closely. The elements look like ones in my floor plan software.

but it's still beautiful! and i love the cave itself!

yeah, another one here who can't really justify voting yes without seeing bedroom and kitchen. Both are essential parts of the home. We didn't need 3.5 shots of the living room and one fairly useless (although charming) vignette.

almost all of her/his comments are negative and s/he has a weird obsession with the legality of bedrooms.

The architecture, the built-ins (that desk!), are too die for!

no, it wasn't, at least not with regard to furniture. Sheldon had two lawn chairs and, I think, a lamp, no other furniture

oooh, thanks for this Maxwell. I'd "found" poppin a while ago and then promptly forgot its name, and I couldn't find the right search parameters to get it to "pop" up in my google searches. Thanks!

I'm a little confused -- two of the items are orange or orange-and-something. Two of the items have are...not. Are you showing us these two items to suggest that they'd GO with something orange?? *scratching my head*

It's from Lifeproof (http://www.lifeproof.com/en/iphone-5/?path=TopNav) and the model being tested is the frē. Note that the frē, pictured above, has a plastic cover over the front of your iPhone, while the newer version, the nüüd doesn't have such a cover, making the above test useless. I have the frē, and so far it's been great.

I owned the cb2 cielo sectional for a few months; I bought one off CL and sold it about 3 months later (because I got a steal on a DWR neo sectional off CL, which I'd been coveting for years). I have to say it looked great for the design I was going for, but I don't think it would have stood the test of time -- I was constantly trying to "fluff up" the seat cushions because they'd take my shape after sitting on them for an evening, then develop "channels" (i.e., the fill material would gravitate to either side of where my body would rest). I think that over time i would have found it lumpy and massively annoying.

I'm also confused as to having to vote only one winner amongst the 4 categories. How on earth can you compare the compromises and decisions made to live in a teeny-tiny home vs the largest size?? Maybe I just don't remember previous years, but I could have sworn there was a teeny-tiny winner, a tiny winner, and so on.

And I, too, would have loved to vote for the international entries -- they were, IMO, among the most creative and fun!

I agree with you, and others, who have suggested voting only once all the entries are in (i also like your idea of separate rent/own categories -- great idea!). Maybe present all the entries over a 3-4 week period, and then, once the entries are closed, a week to go to the Small Cool page, review the entries, and vote.

Not only do the late entries suffer from a reduction in voting time, but I suspect they also suffer from voter fatigue.

I agree. What was the point of my carefully reviewing all the entries and voting for those I thought the best? Really disappointed. I won't even bother voting next year. What's the point?

"To turn off the ability for Siri to use your location, go to Settings > Location Services and set the switch for Siri to Off."

This is wrong. In order to turn Location Services off for Siri, you need to go to Settings > Privacy > Location Services and THEN scroll down to find Siri and select "OFF" to turn it off.
