    It has no warmth at all and with those wooden floors and little or no soft furnishings (not a single curtain or blind in sight) that place would be noisy as buggery.

    ^^I'm with you about Swedish and other Scandinavian styling...Yuck is right.

    I do kind of like the exterior though.

    That white bedroom would have me in a white coat so I could hug myself all day long.

    The ceilings are too low to have wooden beams. Oh yeah, and the whole place is awful. I only like the lawn and the porch.
