SkyCityMint, that looks like it came straight out of my catalogue of 19th century American house designs! Mostly Gothic Revival. Been dragging the thing around with me for over 40 years, and every now and then it comes to the surface and has a look through.

I love it. I had a friend with a house similar to it growing up. His grandfather owned a construction company and built it to be used as a boarding house for his employees. It sat right in the middle of about 10 acres of woods near a big city.

Nothing is groovier than the Maunsell Army forts, although these lighthouses come close, and are for sale.

Along with my own castle, I've always wanted a lighthouse! One of my childhood dreams was to be a lighthouse keeper, although they don't seem to have those anymore, and I couldn't handle the stairs now!

Speaking of lighthouses:

I moved this post from geographical, realizing these were not buildings, but rather houses. Perhaps this post belongs here. I can see a couple of people liking the idea of living in this neighborhood :

Walking in Hyde Park, Austin, just north of the University of Texas downtown. Not necessarily Victorian, but there are a few genuine Victorian homes, as the neighborhood dates back to 1892. There was a revival in the 1940s, as residents transformed bungalows into fairytale homes. You can see some of the older Victorian influences in the 1940s houses.









Some of the local watering holes for students, Dolce Vita Gelato and Liqueur, Hyde Park Café (giant fork), ASTI's Trattoria and Quack's bakery, not shown is Antonelli's Cheese Shop, and Mother's Cafe.

If not Steampunk, perhaps a Dieselpunk RV? Even though this German camper was made in the 1960's, I can't help but marvel at it's unabashedly Art Deco design. Change the pastel colours for strong darker colours, like emerald green or ruby red and gold, change the top to a solid metallic colour with plenty of geometric piping, and I can see this as a Dieselpunk exercise.

I'm having a hard time manipulating the image on my phone, but here's a sepia version - it's easier to visualize: Imagine the white part as aluminium with plenty of rivets around the windows. Add horizontal piping in the lower half and change the square headlights for round ones.


Maybe apply some fins like this Opel bus:


Then add some fake streamlined fenders in black lacquer and some moulding, like on this bus:


And the interior... where to start?






Great for those weekend getaways...

But those are turbine engines, my dear. You need them to cruise on the autobahn at 400 mph! Even trains have them nowadays!



Naturally you will have a driver who will take you back to Berlin after your holiday break,


...just in time for the opening of the Cabaret, while you lounge in back of the vehicle:

This place is for sale, cheap.




The masons had fairly  marvelous architecture  going on with their lodges.. They  a have a style of their own that stands out, including the smaller town buildings .


Yahhhhh.  Beautiful building. Gooing cheap cuz somebody else tried to live there and doesn't have the million per year income (at least) to pay taxes, maintenance, repairs, ( gawd the cost of redoing the roof alone...) heting, cooling, electric ( it's in NY state, cold and rainy in the summer, cold and snowy in the winter) and the radiators demonstrate it has an ancient costly (possibley unsafe) boiler heat system....

Saw a property like that we had to pass on because of .... the hidden costs.

always dreaming....

 Here in the Antipodes the Masonic halls are much smaller,  though still requiring much restoration and adherence to heritage  regulations

This public house is up for grabs:


The following are on the council's historical walks, but cannot be shot because they are peoples houses:

1913, first display home in the area and first house assembled from concrete sections in the area.


Formerly a Hollywood house with a pool on the first floor, this has since been converted into a full first floor as the original was proven impractical:


Then there's this one from my old suburb, and cannot get any better images or find out its history:



That elevator was not there when I was a kid.
