What cave was this?  Were you shipwrecked?

To Whom It may concern; for some very unusual houses, including a steampunk one, and the worlds largest dog (shaped)house, check out extreme cribs on you tube. Extreme Cribs is a series on the MTV channel; at least it is in South Africa.

After a hiatus of mayhem, I have returned. I had this dream we had moved into a gated community inside an old stone quarry where there were man-made caves.

 Some sort of Flintstones psychedelia flash back?

 It does sound intriguing

Well this is a gated community after all.  It wouldn't be Fred Flintstone's or Barney Ruble's neighborhood.  But it might be the home of his boss, Mr. Slate. Perchance do you remember if your suit and tie looked particularly ragged - you know like they were animal skins?

How about a floating seahorse home.

The buoyant structures will have three levels: an upper deck, a main floor at sea level, and an underwater level. The master bedroom and bathroom will be completely submerged, with panoramic underwater views.


I think this is my choice!

There is a fellow in the next town over from me who is an artist.  He works in multiple mediums.  He built a "castle" as a museum to hold his works. 

A sample of his stuff:   he welded a victorian woman with a name plate that says "elizabeth"    During the tour of his castle, he calles her his "tin lizzie"   the entire tour is full of bad puns.    good art, horrible humor.

Anyway, his castle-museum-home would be cool for a steam punk festival or adventure.   he even built a full size replica of a spanish galleon and made a bistro inside of it.......

Isn't there a cable TV show about a residential contractor who builds tree houses?

I will admit, when I went there, I didn't care for his dorky humor.  So I wasn't enthralled with the place.   But..............  looking back in terms of a site for a fictional adventure.....   maybe not so bad.

I don't know about cable programs, but here in South Africa we get a satellite program called Treehouse Masters. Quite possibly the same one. Pete Nelson's headquarters is in Oregon and he does put up some very fantastical structures.

Yes its the same program.  It's a cable or satellite network called Animal Planet.  He a bit overenthusiastic about everything, but he's having fun  Cheesy

At my place of employment, we have a boiler mechanic who comes rather often to fix our equipment. He drives a rather large delivery van, which is tall enough such that you can walk upright inside the the cargo area.

It looks very interesting to me, because it's large enough to make a very decent recreational vehicle, somewhere between the "Mini Winnie" size and the small bus size RVs.

http://m.ramtrucks.com/en/mobile/vehicles/2015/ram-promaster/

I admire the vehicle every time it comes, and imagine the types of windows I'd install on the sides. I think it would look nice in dark metallic green or milk chocolate brown.

 Once I knew a friend of my grandfather, college buddy from the 1942 class, who built his own trailer in the 1980s.  Seems reasonable I could do the same.

 In the early 80s, I used to travel in my grandparents' 25 ft long Southwind (chevy truck/ lorry chassis based) RV all over the West, and it's Achilles heel was the wooden frame and fiberglass construction of the body, which eventually rotted away.

I figure a cargo van like this could be fitted with a folding bunk hanging from the ceiling. And probably fit all the amenities needed.

Just perfect to go West and lose oneself in the vicinity of the Grand Canyon, go visit Yosemite Natl. Park or swing by Vail, Aspen and the Rocky Mountains

Sadly the price will be north of $27000-$32000 for a "blank" van...
