The value of $8000

This New York Times article really got me thinking - Just how far can you take your $8000 homebuyer's tax credit? Seems like a really good design challenge!

Here's an 'after' photo from the article, which cronicles a first-time condo buyer's journey from mish-mashed college furniture to a real grown-up space:

A great example of smart shopping, good design, urban living, and the ingenuity it takes to make a small city space work!

Be sure to check out all the interactive features in the article to really see the transformation. I'd love to see more examples of the tax credit put to work!
