    Surprisingly, I like it. Well except for the whole glass floor/ceiling. No wearing skirts in that house.

    i like it minus all that stainless steel in the kitchen and bathroom. a little stainless steel is fine but a whole roomful is a bit much.

    Same here-I thought I would hate it. But I like most of it. Love the bookcases...love books!!!

    But yeah, a big fat carpet is needed for that glass floor. I ventured out onto the glass floor of the CN Tower in Toronto...and never again.

    It (the glass floor) would be fun in freaking out cats, etc.
    Don't slap me, cause I'm not in the mood!

    A little industrial, but the views are great and the kid's room is fun with all the bright colors and the cubby hole for the bed.
