There may be any number of reasons you ended up with your life in the suburbs. Family, money, job, things out of your control. But all through it you've always loved the idea of a cool loft, high ceilings, timber beams, wood floors. But it never seemed like something that could co-exist with your world of mcmansions and curl-de-sacs, convenience stores and strip malls. But low and behold, it can exist with the L House, and happily right by your neighbors colonial, and your other neighbors Mediterranean. So go ahead, and have your cake and eat it too.
