Have you priced real estate there? Found good mexican food or even a
decent pizza?

You're not kidding. This is what $1.06 million buys you in Vancouver
these days:

Only the wealthy can afford to buy houses in Vancouver nowadays. The
nice low energy costs don't even begin to compensate.

2000 sq ft and they couldn't manage to get a decent sized kitchen? That
thing is small. Where did all the space go?

A lot depends on the era when the kitchen was created. Kitchens used
to have enough room for a kitchen table in the middle where a family
ate when not having company over (then it would be the dining room).
If not room for a dinner table, there'd be at least for children
running in and out. Later they became little more than cooking
factory areas, intended for just the wife or bachelor to work.

I have a place that has such a kitchen. It is nearly impossible for
both my wife and I to prepare dinner together in that thing.
Most mobile homes have a better kitchen. ****es me off.
****, I've seen RV's with a superior kitchen!

That number includes the "mortgage helper" suite in the basement. The
actual living space is probably no more then 1300 sf. 1950s bungalows
were small.
