Build your house wisely [if you can afford a house]


On Friday  Meitar's gym was full of young couples.

As the stacks of booklets prove, it was a lecture and exhibit day on the subject Build Your House Wisely--in Meitar and Carmit, 2014.

Wouldn't it be fun to have a samples case like this full of little floor tiles?

My grandchildren would love to play with such samples.

This is probably as close as I'll ever get to the beautiful (and costly) imported material.
But at least I learned the name Klinker (see about clinkers in Wiki).
Here is a short video becrying the skyrocketing prices of plots for homes in the now being built new neighborhood of Meitar, like three times more than in 2008.
Even if you don't speak Hebrew, you can see our Council Head (mayor) and my town of Meitar.

Even buying a house these days, the rates skyrocket depending on where you are.

It is amazing how housing prices seem to have skyrocketed all over. I love seeing how the technology and styles vary between countries.

Prices have dropped here, not much money around...

Prices skyrocket and then the floor drops out. Pretty high risk these days for the young.

My first thought was about you when I heard today news from Jerusalem. I hope you will be OK in the forthcoming new wave of war and hate.
Very interesting exhibition in a gym. Building is a true man's activity, not destruction.

Irina, thanks for your thoughts.
"Fortunately" I do not live near Jerusalem anymore. Down here in the Negev desert life is normal.
