Somewhat tangentially

This is so much fun! Floorplanner is a free web-based home design application. I'm obsessively remodeling my house in virtual space.

As I consider retirement, I'm trying to figure out whether it makes more sense (financially and in other ways) to stay in my house or move to a condo. I can't actually downsize--that is, I already live in what amounts to a one-bedroom apartment with a yard--but I wouldn't mind getting rid of the gardening trouble and expense.

On the other hand, I can't beat my location, and there's the whole conundrum of having to fix the place up before I could put it on the market, so why not fix it up and just stay?

This drawing, therefore, represents some fixing-up-to-stay ideas. And about twenty hours of crazed over-focus on my laptop screen.

Floorplanner includes in its grab-bag of pre-built assets a Dutch bike (!), a clothesline, a cat, some spiffy rugs, and reasonable facsimiles of most of Ikea's kitchen cabinet line. (It could not accommodate my brilliant plan to create a guest "room" by hiding a twin Murphy bed horizontally inside the breakfast bar, so I faked that.)
