Privacy Issues

Check out this completely transparent glass house in Tokyo, Japan...must be pretty interesting to get dressed each morning. On second thought, I'll bet the neighbors like it.

I've got 99 problems and a Porch is one

If you have been to our home, you have probably noticed that we tend to shy away from showing off the back of the house, most specifically, our three season porch.  The reason is that well, we dump a lot of shit back there that is garbage and it currently resembles the set of Dexter, as shown below:

It's an eyesore, and a big one at that.  The wood is rotted, the windows are broken and its completely unusable.  So now that it looks like we will be staying here a while, we are deciding to FINALLY do something about it, and remodel that bitch into a usable and organized four season porch/sun room.  We are currently getting estimates from builders and hoping it doesn't break the bank too much. After one left today, I thought to myself "self, you should probably get your ass in gear and figure out what you want this space to look like when finished."  So, I started looking online for photos.  And then I got sucked into the black hole that is the internet, and 4 hours went by and I was sitting in the dark, in my dining room, like a total creep.  There are just so many questions that we need to answer!

Do we want to use it as a dining area?

Do we want to put a tv out there (husband screams yes from the other room, and add speakers too)?

Do we want windows all the way around?

Would a window seat look stupid?

Can we do built ins?  Is there a point?

Do we have any mac and cheese?  Sorry, got side tracked

You get the gist of it.  So below are some photos that will hopefully inspire me to do something and kick my brain into gear:

Anyone have any advice?  We need some serious help over here and I dont think a bottle of wine is going to do the trick.

Loving these messy buns from around the blog world.

Oh SH*T!!

After quite a bit of a hiatus, I'm back.  Refreshed, reloaded and ready to get this little bloggity blog back up and on track.  First up, have a look at the terrifying photo below.  Creative- 100%.  Enough to scare you every time you are using the ah..facilities, abso-fucking-lutely.

A Mexican penthouse, with a bathroom directly above a non-working, 15 story elevator shaft.  I don't know how anyone could get used to that, ever.  Imagine the sheer horror one would feel waking up after a night of binge-drinking and hugging the throne?  It would also be pretty funny sending your house guests in there for the first time, installing a hidden video camera would definitely be necessary.

And if that isn't crazy enough, check out The Aquaria Grande in Mumbai India.  A 37 story residential tower with swimming pools on each balcony.  Yes, you read that correctly.  I wouldn't want to be the guy who insures the glass surround, and I can bet there is absolutely no "cannon balling" allowed here.

Lastly, check out the Vertical Forest, which is currently being built in Milan, Italy. When completed, it will not only look incredibly stupid, but will also use so much steel and cement to support the weight of the trees that it will counter-balance the whole idea of "going green". 

Would you live in places like this?  My blood pressure is through the roof just thinking about swimming in those pools and trusting that the glass wouldn't crack while I was gracefully back-stroking my way around.
