Man I can't even post in the fucking homeownership thread, SF is like a stupid assholes magnet.

Coming from the guy who uses /= for "not equal"...

Didn't know where else to put this... I'm considering moving to another unit in my apartment building. I haven't seen it in person but I can tell (from staring out my window into the unit in question) that it's hardwood floors. I currently have and hate carpet. Is it worth even considering the hassle of moving just for a different view (not particularly better - different angle of the same view I currently have) and lower maintenance floors? Looking for thoughts while I decide about actually requesting a viewing and obtaining a rental quote.

Joffery, I would say it depends how long you plan to stay there. If it's several years, and those floors really get on your nerves, yes.

I have no immediate plans to move. I hate moving and I'm not willing to pay more to live closer to downtown. So I'll be in the building for another year at least.

wood is not lower maintenance than carpet.

I know there's multiple ways to skin this cat but http://www.sonos.com/products/wireless-stereo-components with my in ceiling speakers around the house and home theatre system really rocks. The app also lets you stream a huge number of internet radio stations and being able to control the whole thing from your smart phone is awesome.

I think Sonos is still ahead of the competition. I just use their stand alone speakers (5 and Playbar) but have friends with whole house systems and they are the best.

Sonos is an excellent choice! glad that it is all working for you. I have been looking at ways to add them to my house as well. Damned plaster walls

Brands for kitchen and bathroom faucets? Seen a few recs for Grohe. But, not finding more than superficial reviews.

I just installed a Hans Grohe faucet (which is not the same company as Grohe), and I really like it. It is substantial, I like the styling, and it works (I don't know what else there is to a faucet).

Update on my situation: our lowball offer was accepted and we have a contract. Did a walkthrough with the inspector today and there were no major surprises. The major projects are re-pouring one foundation wall; new roof; new driveway; gut reno of the kitchen; and new paint throughout along with some sheetrock upstairs.

We've hit a slight snag due to a potential title defect. The attorneys are looking into it but we were supposed to close tomorrow, and that is obviously delayed. Fingers crossed that this works out.

Just had an offer accepted on an off-the-grid cabin with solar power and a gravity-fed spring. I know nothing about either and am considering drilling a well and laying in underground cable from the road. Much to learn.
