Call me crazy...

...but this may be the coolest place to live I've ever seen.

Yeah, I saw that pic on the intar-web thing last week. The caption, which I had no reason to disbelieve, identified it as the Clinton family compound.

I saw it recently. I like it.
Now that you've moved, Tam, you have to stop thinking that way. IN has rednecks, but TN & KY still manufacture more than anybody else.

I love the way the spaces are arranged, but hate the materials, construction techniques, and architectural details.

Container building is the first thing I thought of when I saw that picture. Saw something about it on Discovery or some such last year. Really cool concept for modular building. Here are more examples.

Pfffft. It won't be home until there's a PBR pyramid and an above ground pool. I mean hell, don't half ass it.

So if I move there does the resident's association REQUIRE me to wear a mullet and carry a miller when in view of the public?

It is a set at an outdoor theater in Amsterdam. Sorry.

A girl can dream, can't she?

I'd totally live there, and I'd be willing to duke it out or jell-o wrestle for the penthouse suite. My mid-century modern sofa would look so sweet in one of those!

Am I the only one who thought of the Disney version of the Swiss Family Robinson?

A trailer park compound?

I always pictured you more as the type to own a converted missile silo.

And Conex box houses rawk - Some of our troops in Iraq have mini apartments built out of them. I've even thought that the 40 footers make a dandy start for an underground pistol range - just add chopped rubber and a ventilator.

Greenhouse needs fixin'.
And the penthouse needs new paint.

Other than that, it's pretty cool.

Thomas Smith: Tallboy High Lifes, thank you very much. This is a swank joint. ;)

Which is, for the record, the Coolest. House. Evar.

Wouldn't living in such an abomination be like giving Mother Nature the finger? I mean you're just begging for Ma Nature to pimp slap your sorry butt to OZ.

Wait.......... Isn't that one on the right Paul's? I recognize your old digs.

If the wireless reception is okay, I'd totally live there.

Or, if you need less space but a little more luxury, you can opt for the German version:
