February 16, 2008: Russian builds 13 story, 144 foot high home out of wood



Griff represent!!

According to this page, this Russian gent found himself building his own 2-story house when he realized... why stop at two stories? By the time he was done... well...

Quote:
based in the russian city of archangelsk, ex-gangster nikolai originally intended the building to contain 2 floors but couldn't help himself when he realised there was nothing to stop him adding more on top. nothing, that is, apart from the slow-off-the-mark local authorities who say that wooden buildings shouldn't exceed 2 floors in height, the result being that the 144ft high building is now under threat of demolition, something which would be an absolute travesty in my opinion. slightly crazy but creative ex-gangster russian architects should be given free reign to build whatever they like.

This will definitely make one hell of a bonfire when it goes.
He couldn't have designed it to burn any better if he tried.

Boy... Aint that the truth..

That or a good stiff wind.

I don't think his elevator goes all the way to the top.

It looks like something out of a post-apocalyptic sci-fi movie where the inhabitants try to recreate skyscrapers out of whatever is available.

It would make a great movie set.

Of course, it would also make a great 144 foot bonfire.

If the authorities were coming to tear it down, it would be a very Russian gansta move to torch the place first.

looks cool. looks Russian. but doesn't look very warm. Yikes! I wonder if anyone but pigeons lives in the upper stories?

I love handmade houses!

[Big Bad Wolf] Let me blow this house down! [/Big Bad Wolf]

I love it!

On second thought maybe it's his version of Russian Burning Man.....?



Where's a window salesman when you need one?



Kris  Sunday Feb 17 11:09 PM

That, or he went mental, ala Mrs. Winchester:

Rich people don't "go mental", they become eccentric.

Was he fed up building matchstick houses?

When your only tool is a hammer, everything looks like a nail. Add a plank and this is what you get.

It reminds me of "The Burrow", the Weasley family home in Harry Potter.

That is wonderful! Makes me feel like a piker except that my house is cozy tonight at 8 F presently and his looks a might drafty. That is a marvel, build brother build!
