SF Cribs: The places behind the clothes - Page 85

Looks great. Unless you've seen other stuff you like, I'd take it and find some temporary sublease for 2-3 months. Also, I'd push hard (maybe with some financial incentive) on having them finish in 2 rather than 3.

Wow. SF might be becoming a Match.com kind of thing:
First we bring together spb_lady and matt and now iammatt and lefty!

Maybe there is hope for Neo yet.
And edina.

I don't think tying her up in your basement counts, but we are checking with the judges...

Nice restoration, I wouldn't want to live there however.

It is spectacular and one of the few places that I looked at and instantly "got". I saw how our furniture/lifestyle would fit whereas most places I'm struggling to see how we could live there. This fellow has been collecting salvaged architecture for years and has put it all in this place. At any rate, the rent is more than I can get my head around, the street is busy, no outdoor space, and we have been living out of suitcases for three weeks and I don't want to double move.

Looking at space here is tough. Realtors seem to make up sq footage on the spot and the grand looking typical SF house facade is in fact faked with the top 4-5 feet just added on for street appeal. Half the city is like a cheap Bollywood film set.

I really disliked the interior paint in that place. Though the kitchen looked nice.

I'm a bit of a grey guy, so it works for me. What I particularly liked was that this was new wood trim that was painted. Usually you see moulding with so many layers of paint that it has lost it's shape, but here the edges were crisp. Also it was high gloss which was a bold move. Most people would have used semi-gloss. I looked at another place yesterday where every room was painted with RL Suede paint. After the third room I asked if the whole place was like that. When the agent said, yes, I walked. Who the hell would put that shit on every wall of their house? lefty

+1 I really dislike high-gloss interiors. Looks like a barbershop or an old train station.

Somewhere between "more than you think" and "damn". Fair for what it is.

Found some better pics on the realtor site, but they still don't do it justice.

Beautiful, lefty. Gray and white can potentially work in any room, and that is a perfect example. That dark wood is also nice.
