$1275 for a large ~1100 sq ft 2 bedroom in Midtown Toronto, shared with a roommate

Now: $1050 mortgage payment for a 1 bedroom plus den condo, around 650 sq ft, in Mississauga, just outside of Toronto.

Toronto might be out of reach right now but in a few years when we sell this place we'll make enough and have saved enough to be able to buy something decent closer to the subway. All this time commuting will have been worth it!

Love this! We have something similar here in Toronto, the workroom (http://www.theworkroom.ca/). I've been there myself for a sewing class and it was tons of fun, plus Karyn the owner/instructor was great! For anyone in Toronto I highly recommend it.

Well I don't believe that ghosts exist but all of your stories are giving me chills! I've never lived in a supposedly haunted house and I don't think I would mind... as long as they were nice!

Tasterspoon: All information about a house needs to be disclosed to potential buyers, and this includes things like grow-ops and deaths. At least this is the case in Canada!

Hmm... as someone who works in development/relief I want to believe that this will work and be functional. They say that they have consulted with The Rural Haiti Project (which works with local communities to make their voices heard).. but to what extent? I just hope that these plans are approved of by the community & have been created with lots, and lots of community input. You don't want to pour money into a project that no one will be happy with.

All that being said, this is TRANSITIONAL housing until real houses are built.. and the process of rebuilding will be a long one!

The last paragraph on their website sounds promising and like they've done their homework! I would love to hear how the prototype project turns out and the feedback that they receive from communities.

So beautiful! I love all the details of the actual apartment, the high ceilings and the huge windows! The bed is pretty awesome too.

Divna kucica :)

Thanks! Can't wait to replace the ugly vertical blinds that are still there from the previous owner.

Love it! What is the deal with condo developers in the GTA all using the same layout? My condo is almost the exact same except a little longer & the den is open.

I love the roller blinds in the bedroom - I have been looking at something similar for a while (and my window is the exact same strange shape). Where did you get them?

I love the renovation. Although the Monet was nice I'm guessing that it doesn't looks as good up close.

I love the faucet but it looks a bit tall, so tall that it looks like it would be the way of opening the medicine cabinet.

@ ricksnotserious : LOL way to bring back the humour!

I for one like this place! The kitchen cabinets are amazing. There are some things that are not my style, but that doesn't take away from the fact that this a beautiful home.

Puella I think you hit the spot. As someone who as a child saw grenades & other weapons being used as weapons and not as decor I find this extremely distasteful. My skin crawled when I saw that photo.

Please, let's be a little more sensitive to other people's life experiences, not everyone has lived a life free of war & violence.

Stereotypes will never go away but it's up to us to decide how we use them. Things like this continue to perpetuate the gender stereotypes that already exist. I think the Simpsons bit would have been way more interesting if Homer tried to outdo Marge and did a better job than her.

My boyfriend and I just moved in together and he is surprisingly excited to decorate and make our place look nice. He is the only guy that I've dated who notices details and visual things in general so this is probably why he wants our place to looks nice.

The bed looks like it would hurt to get in and out of. The whole place is awesome though, love the green wall in the media room.

I love this idea! I've actually been debating doing this in my den but I wasn't sure how it would look. I think I'm definitely going to do this now.

Joan in SB, as far as I can tell they're the Ikea PAX cabinets.
