Re: Thoughts

>> Ansels home is twice the size of the average UK two bedroom house... although as you point out, that's not taking into account functional space. <<

The UK is a lot more walkable than America, though, even T-America. That influences house size. If you expect to do a lot of your socializing elsewhere, and there are places you can borrow things so you don't need your own copy of everything, then smaller living is more feasible. The more you have to do on your own at home, the more room you need to store it all.

One reason why Ansel, as a single person, bought a house sized for a couple with overflow space for guests and recreation on different floors is because he's a cop. He loves his job, he loves people, but it's still stressful at times. So his sociability varies widely. This way Ansel can come home and crash alone, hole up with his girlfriend, hide in his office, go biking, exercise in private, have a party, go to the community building and hang out with friends ... it depends on his energy level and social interests in the moment.

>> Still, I'd like to have a 'little' home like that, given that even deducting the garage space, it's bigger than where I live now... and much nicer looking. <<

It is a really nice cabin.

>> And yeah, if you're going to crash land somewhere, at Ansels feet is a pretty good point to do it. <<

Yep. Ansel may be worried about how wrecked Turq is, but the fact that Turq keeps seeking him out -- however reluctantly -- for help is a huge sign of progress.
