Regular visitors here at Mannionville Building and Plumbing & Electrical Supply know that one of the banes of my existence is modular furniture and that every time I lose a day assembling something out of box that blonde has brought home from Target because, hey, we needed a new bookshelf or a table or a chair or a nightstand and “It was on sale!” I have vowed No more modular furniture ever!
So, explain to me, doc, why is it I want one of these these?
Ikea teams up with prefab home designer Ideabox for an instant home packed with Swedish-style furniture, flooring, and appliances.
Am I nuts?
But it would fit nicely into our backyard and make a good office or an apartment for the Mannion guys or a guest house or a rental!
Of course, if I had $86,000 on hand I could have an addition put on the house by a real contractor and crew that would know what they were doing.
Or I could buy a new car or four.
Or stop worrying about how to pay for the guys’ college educations.
Or blow it all on fast horses and loose women.
But where’s the fun in that?
Here’s a look inside at Ideabox.
And here’s a post documenting the last time I vowed No more modular furniture ever! It’s actually kind of an amusing post and the comments are great and that bookcase is still standing!
