Home sweet home

Miss martha has teamed up with KB Homes, America's leading homebuilder, to produce a signature line of houses in a subdivision called Twin Lakes in Carey, NC, near Research Triangle Park. I hate to admit it, but I kind of like them. They are a bit postmodern, in that they are re-creations of earlier architectural styles. Unlike the homes at Celebration, Florida, the planned Disney community near Disneyworld, these homes make some attempt to adhere to their architectural styles both inside and out (at Celebration, in a very postmodern way, historically inspired exteriors contain completely modern interiors). And I like a lot of the interior touches. Ok, I'll admit it. If I could get a job nearby (and with 14 universities in the area you'd think I'd have a shot), I'd by one in a heart beat.

be careful sitting down

Who says artistic furniture can't be manly? Special thanks to "Brat" for sending me this link to possibly the coolest side chair I've ever seen. We ought to get one for Dick Cheney.
