The Nimble House

A high rate of growth in a city stresses all of its systems. It's also quite a lot of fun to take advantage of the new goods and services that accompany change. Living in the same building since 1980, I've seen the place through many iterations of content, function, and style. I have not indulged in change for its own sake, because home furnishings have a significant carbon cost. 

The following strategies allow rapid change as demands, some of which can be sudden, require. Use existing cupboards and storage areas, but make sure that additional shelving and storage containers are freestanding, modular, and knock-down. Have the same color scheme in all the rooms.
Choose soft furnishings in plain colors. Use freestanding or clip-on lighting fixtures. Take the time to tailor living quarters to suit new requirements. -30-
