Which of the following causes is most important to you?
What would you most like to do on a vacation?
You should live in a "painted lady!" Painted ladies are historic Victorian homes in San Francisco that are painted bright colors. They're a hit with tourists, and they are colorful and charming, just like Lou's Lola Celina (who would be a pink "painted lady" if she were a house, according to Lou)!
You should live in a floating house like the one Jack Allen, his brother, and dad live in on the weekends in THE HOUSE THAT LOU BUILT! According to Lou, floating houses are friendly, homey, and unexpected. You'll always be able to get out on the water for an adventure, and you'll never be lonely because there will always be plenty of people sailing or kayaking by.
You should live in an Eichler home like Lou's teacher, Mr. Keller. Eichlers are named after the architect Joseph Eichler, and they're all about efficiency and practicality. They are very open, often with floor-to-ceiling windows, they tend to incorporate lots of local materials, and they have both indoor and outdoor spaces. Lou thinks Mr. Keller's mostly glass house fits him perfectly because Mr. Keller shows all of his emotions, so "you see into him perfectly."
You have extravagant taste and appreciate the luxuries in life, so you should live in a mansion. You'll have plenty of space and things will never feel too cramped. Lou might not approve of your choice...although she does appreciate gatherings with lots of family and friends, so if you host fun parties she might get on board!
Just like Lou, you'd be happiest in a tiny house you build yourself! As Lou knows, tiny houses are great because they have everything you need but in as compact a space as possible. That means you can save money and help save the planet, since they're efficient. They're perfect for people who are determined and capable, like Lou, and who love a challenging project.
