I want a house that bad *** one day. I love simplistic design, and stone/concrete. So this is right up my alley.

I pray for a zombie outbreak every day.

That is sick as hell, if I ever become rich that is along the lines of what I will have built.

I would love to have worked on that house. It can definitely be done.

Too bad I can go up on this property that my dad poured back in the 80's The house is all concrete, super huge windows, tall as fack, and even has a full size ballroom in the middle of it. If I could I'd post pictures but I doubt they'd enjoy me walking up the driveway taking shots of it.

Not really.

I would like my house to be made out of concrete but to look like its made of wood on the inside. Short ceiling (no more than 8 feet high), lots of books, speakers in every room, fully airconditioned (I hate heat), ethernet plugs everywhere, etc.

It was social/political commentary. Every Greek family in the area is either shipping 'protection' over or shipping family members here.

I'd rather had a decommissioned missile silo turned residential dwelling.

I like the house but when the doors are open it's just a lil bit too "hey look at what I'm doing!" for my tastes.

Doesn't seem like it would be that hard to do. The costliest and hardest part would be making it sealed to the outside and ventilated with a serious filtration unit and battery backup and generators, ect. I'd like to just do a simple sub basement. Do just like you would dig out for a basement, but go one floor or more deeper, and build with poured concrete sealed with tar, then pour the ceiling or floor for the next level and support the inner structure with thick beams and pillars. Of course it would have to have a fire pole for easy access to the lower level(s).
