building new castles every day

old apartments

My sister and her boyfriend are making the move from East Van to the Granville/Broadway neighbourhood.

I like the older, well-maintained apartment buildings of this area. The years of new paint jobs layered over wall wire casings. The aged grouting between ceramic tiles. The odd placing of power outlets.

I’m excited for Sam and their new place of carpetless floors, white walls, large windows and fireplace. So excited that I couldn’t help documenting my friend’s bachelor place at Hemlock and 12th.
