About houses/other real estate that interest you.   :)

Among other things, I worked at a pizza place a couple of miles from this house back when it was being built. I delivered there a number of times during the latter stages of construction, and it was trippy af. Delivered to the original owners a couple of times after they moved in, and it was even more out-there once it was finished and furnished. The pics don't do it justice at all, but they're still worth seeing:

That looks straight out of The Incredibles, imaginary. It's much nicer inside than out.

I'm not sure why, but I quite enjoy Soviet Brutalism:

It does look interesting, and some brutalist architecture is weirdly brilliant. Then, there's this:

I almost like it! Brutalism is ultimately the product of stinginess and oppression, but if allowed some creative freedom, it can be no different from an artist restricting their palette.

This one has fascinated me since my youth. I just wish someone I know moves there one day, so I can go inside.

I've been obsessed with the idea of bridge-houses for a long time now, although my current mindpic involves steel arches and such. Still, this French house is really cute:

I loved this house in Velvet Buzzsaw.



Garbage film, though.

So I personally own a recreational vehicle (RV). It doesnít travel anymore, cause itís a bit old, hence I have it permanently parked in a super nice campground.

But, I would kill for an Airstream and travel with it across my vast country for 3-4 months.

Or I could rent one of the few that are on AirBnB. (this one in Malibu)
