not a good picture of that. it's a gravity furnace in the basement. The basement walls stick up 20-30 cm above ground level (moreso in the back) and that's where the exhaust pipe comes out. I have some better pictures.

It's a rental and is twice as much as I can afford and I have to pay all the utilities on top of that. With gas (heat) prices so high it'll be a wonder how I pay for it all. But the place has some charm. Wood floors, tiled shower, bathroom and kitchen and a cute really old gas stove that works like a breeze. I'm a cook, so can appreciate the fine controls on an old stove that works well.
I've been trying to load more pictures all morning to photo bucket but my connection is poor today so I only have 2-3 to share.
this is from the front door looking thru the place to the back door

The thing on the floor, center bottom of the above pict is the vent for the furnace. Don't step on it in bare feet when it's hot! They call this type of structure a 'shotgun shack' because the line of site runs straight from the front door to the back and the rest of the place doesn't branch out at all. Well, except for this comical but very functional closet that sticks out from the straightlines of the house, on the north side. The top picture is from the sidewalk, from the ESE looking NW.
and this is from the backdoor, looking thru to the front door. Notice the window design on the pre-fabricated door.

Same as the window in the top picture from the outside :)
I wonder what the landlord would sell it for.

When I got this camera I got into the habit of taking videos of the internal spaces that I fequented. Little videos sometimes too/ just to get a sense of the space documented. I haven't done that yet here.

I made a video of my room, but it was too large to get on YouTube.

Rearrange your vid's in IVC1.5 it is on the computer
Then it will fit. Ask me for ass. if needed.

Yes it is a beautiful house with a one row corridor. Most houseboats in the canals of Amsterdam are built the same.

In Eindhoven there is a neighbourhood (next to ours in fact) that is called "Schuttersbos" (gunmans forest). In the crisis years Philips must have houses for ther personnel and they bought pre fabricated wooden houses in Austria for what we call a cheap price nowadays. It was payed for in potatoes and lightbulbs. After 40 years the houses can not met nowadays expectations and they will all dissapear and changed for newly wooden prefabricated houses from Finland.

It is amazing to see how quick a house like that is built.
he BBP make some pictures of it, please.

De website where I got my info from is
http://www.gijzenrooi.nl/Buurt/schuttersbosch.php Sorry it is in Dutch.

When you asked me to valuate your house, I would carefully say that the worth of the house is the same as the price of
the round it is standing up. (Regarding to the story above)

'houseboats in the canals'. That's great!!
Now I'm going to find pictures of that. You alerted me to something I know very little about but have always been curious about.
I think you are right, the house probably costs as much as the ground it sits on. Prices here are so high and have been for such a long time and now they fall.
You see the crisis years. Are you speaking of WWII? or later?

Houseboats you will find them in a lot of varieties.
But most are divided into 3 groups.
Concrete base (ponton)
Steel base (ponton)
Converted former cargoships (sometimes with motor)

The ones with a concrete or steel base are some sort of houses on the water. They can have more floors than one.

SD card's house is broken (a littlle corner)
Its fit better in the camera than in the cardreader
a few drops of superglue will help
With a little help from a piece of paper I managed to get the prictures for now.
