Welcome to HousePorn.ca

This site happened partly by intent, but mostly by accident.

A few years ago at a dinner party, my friends and I shared our growing propensity to surf the net for extended hours lost in the never-ending click of possibilities. However, we weren't looking at cute babies or adorable animals. Nor were we sleuthing for sexy salacious videos of the humankind. Instead, our visceral wants, needs and desires were consumed for anything housing.

Yes, that night we collectively confessed to our obsession for House Porn.

As a realtor who sells Toronto real estate - and a lover of architecture, landscape, interior design, shelter products and all things real estate – not to mention an extremely proud Canadian – I've always been fascinated with all the facets of domestic space and their contents. So I was surprised to discover, and a little disappointed, there aren't many shelter sites dedicated strictly to Canadian housing. After all, the true north, strong and free, is brimming with jaw-dropping domiciles, breath-taking residential landscapes, dazzling interior design, Canuck-made products, and some stellar real estate for sale or lease. So, after some reflection but mostly enthusiasm, I decided to start exploring, documenting, and showcasing Canada's astounding diverse homegrown talent for everything housing and home

Welcome to my slice of Canadiana!

I'm Steven Fudge, a purveyor in the trade of real estate who leads www.urbaneer.com, which is a sales and marketing division of Bosley Real Estate Ltd., Brokerage.

Not only am I a realtor, I've dedicated my passion to the exploration of the importance and meaning of Home in our contemporary culture. I also enjoy helping steer young Canadians into fields they're passionate about, through ongoing research, writing, guidance and support. I invite Canadian Students and recent graduates from coast to coast enrolled in the fields of Architecture, Landscape, Interior Design, Housing Products, and Canadian History of Art & Architecture (and any other field related to Canadian Shelter or journalism) to research and write stories on our country's domestic distinction, to offer more breadth and depth on our culture of shelter!

If you are Canadian with a strong design sensibility, and you'd like to share your unique project, we'd love to hear from you. Or if you're anywhere in Canada looking for a Paid Internship, simply fill out the 'Contact Us' page so we can explore the possibilities, together.
