Over at Everybody Has To Be Somewhere, BW just posted this picture of an abandoned silo in Alberta.
Has to be built tough, right, to survive the howling winters there, and support all that grain?
So, here's the idea. Buy it cheap, tear it down, and take it somewhere and rebuild it into the world's coolest cabin/home! Put in an elevator or lift, each floor has it's own function, and the top floor is the bedroom with a roll back ceiling, to allow star gazing at night. It would be high enough to avoid mosquitoes.
Plenty of wall space for art. Windows could be installed everywhere. It may even have a lightning rod already. Genius! Now, if I only had a spare million or so laying around to make such a thing happen. Call Architectural Digest, have I got the story for you!
