As the world gets crazier so do the homes we live in. This “silo” home is currently on the market for 1.75 million. Pocket change for a silo that took millions to build. Located in the Adirondack’s in upstate New York it is perfectly placed for seclusion. Especially when you have hoards of mutants running around outside……….
Check out http://www.silohome.com/ for more info and purchasing.

I was recently turned on to a story out of Russia. It seems their characteristic wooden churches (architectural wonders) are falling by the wayside due to natural disasters and lack of maintenance. Truly a shame to such beautiful buildings.
Be sure to visit http://www.richarddavies.co.uk/woodenchurches/ for Mr. Richard Davies website and for information on his new book ( “Wooden Churches – Travelling in the Russian North “) about the churches. Here is an excerpt of the story and a link to the full story and video. I added a gallery as well of some beautiful churches still standing as well. Maybe if we all turn our attention to this matter we can make a difference. Enjoy!
“The wooden church, one of Russia’s unique architectural treasures, is in danger of extinction. Once dotting the landscape by the thousand, years of harsh weather, fires, war and neglect have not been kind. Today, some 200 churches remain, most dating from the 1700s and located in the northern regions of Arkhangelsk, Karelia, and Vologda. “

As always, great praise and thanks to all the photographers featured here. Excellent shots!
Get involved in this cause! The loss of these building would be a irreversible cultural loss.

Levitate Architects based in London came up with an amazing solution for a man who had a library of books and no space. Excellent aesthetic appeal as well as opening up a large amount of space.
