It’s interesting to read about the guy who built it: [Ludwig II of Bavaria](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ludwig_II_of_Bavaria) >He succeeded to the throne aged only 18. Two years later Bavaria was effectively subjugated by Prussia, and subsequently absorbed into the German Empire. Ludwig remained King of Bavaria, but
Some municipalities require sprinklers in new construction as part of their fire code. Source: I am involved in the construction of new homes.
a fair point to be sure, but people in this thread are criticising the old computer monitor, maybe its an old picture sure, but they criticising it because that aspect isn’t something they like, is it so unreasonable to criticise another aspect, the name,
This design does nothing for me. The protruding rocks around the fireplace are an eyesore. The kitchen is bland, so the matching microwave and felt(?) chairs are the first things I noticed. The office is oddly placed and cramped. I’m impartial with the lounge

The copper and the sand tones are beautiful together aren’t they? I think that is why the stark red & white flowers seem so out of place. The landscaping should be something that complements the copper patina. I am also fairly certain that if
The coffee table is incredible and I totally agree with the column. I love star wars, too, but I’m not sure I would go full nerd like this with such a beautiful space. Still, I’m almost sold by the synergy between half of the
There are a few ways. Assuming you’re shooting on a tripod, you can take another exposure with highlights properly exposed and blend it by hand. You can use HDR/fusion software to combine bracketed frames. For the exposure you’ve got, post processing programs available today

This is Quadra Island– [Here’s an idea of property prices.](http://www.bcoceanfront.com/quadra-island.php) There aren’t any cities around for hours but there’s a short ferry ride to Campbell River which has most of what people need.
The Risks are mainly financial and ignorance. You need to set aside money to enlarge the holes in the ceiling and floors on a regular basis and be prepared to pay more for home insurance when you buy a house with trees growing thru
Not at all. When calculating practicality, simplicity tends to be more pragmatic. You’re saying that a system to lift a pretty decent sized stair case into a ceiling would be more practical? Shit, the hydraulic equipment to do that would probably take up a
Some interesting facts: * Average price per night: $16,500 (£10,978) !! (wow!) * 6 Bedrooms * 10 bathrooms * 2 living / recreational areas * après ski area * gourmet kitchen with breakfast bar * fitness center – * around 4,500 square feet of
In theatre we call it the ‘rake’, where the seating angles up to allow everyone to see well and you’re absolutely right. This would be a terrible theatre to see a show in, but I’d bet that this venue is used mostly for classical
It’s a [thermogenic](http://i.imgur.com/BUasY3i.jpg) fan specifically made for indoor pools. The idea originally dates back to roman times, although today they use copper plated blades to help reduce the [hydroaquatic](http://i.imgur.com/BUasY3i.jpg) properties of the humid air.

As the TMZ article states, this is in the Walker Tower development. Its basically a redevelopment of an old Art Deco building that was used by Verizon for a number of years. While the location is a bit “eh” in my opinion, the views
it’s subtle, but it’s out there. it’s just funny because we actually have 2 really large technical centers (boulder and the denver tech center) with a number of big businesses including IBM, Sun (formerly, of course), and dozens of others… but you get one
Congrats! You have any closer pictures of the wall? The white spots and streaks could be sawdust from insects.
[Second Empire architecture](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Second_Empire_architecture) was most popular from 1865 to 1880. Victorian house architecture hit its climax with [Queen Anne style](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Queen_Anne_style_architecture_in_the_United_States), which was most popular from 1880 to 1910, and is noted for a lot of gingerbread woodwork. Both styles make excellent settings for horror
My personal reaction: “Gack, that’s tacky and busy as hell.” But my whore-reality: I’m working on remodeling a roughly 2 million dollar house, and I’m going to copy a bunch of stuff from that (though there isn’t room for a stair like that… as
I used to do a lot of real estate deals and I sometimes saw a rate bump for sod homes. I always wondered if I was going to run into one.

Reminds me a bit of the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore. They have a spa/gym locker room near the top of one of the buildings with baths built against massive windows overlooking the city. Tried to find photos, because it’s truly stunning, but I
You’re right about the ceiling being dirty and I have no clue why that isn’t already cleaned up but everything else looks pretty clean and new. Personally, I think it’s a pretty neat room that’d feel good to be in. Very open and lots
