    Yes very much so. It looked well out of place there. More typical of the Miami Beach area.

    Heres a nice tropical home - I think you could 'cheat' a lot and build it for not too much money ( minus elaborate pool )

    One thing I've learned in my old age is you don't really need as big a home as some people "think" they require. Living for 5 months each year in what is basically just one big room in a hotel has taught me that. I travel in my truck and camper for months at a time in Canada and never feel "cramped". It's only if the weather is raining non-stop for a week that I would prefer a little more room.

    The little home that Bacon posted is well thought out and gets full use of all available space. Proper design and understanding your personal needs is the key. If you have creative hobbies (art, woodworking, fixing old cars, music, etc etc) then it's better to have a separate building for that. Most of the time it doesn't even need to be heated. And, it gets all the "clutter" away if you have guests.

    It does not cost a whole lot more to design and build something properly in the first place: extra wiring, gas heating stove, solar panels, properly designed shelves, cupboards and closets.
    Hi maintenance ?
    Its stone and terracotta !

    Daffodils? You're not a gardener, Quarky. Those are tulips. The deer here love to eat them. They ate all but a few of the hundred I planted. But, the deer won't touch anything of the daffodil family.

    Hopefully most of the artwork and relics have been saved , i assume the French will rebuild, just like we did with Windsor and York , the whole place was 3D mapped a few years ago

    PARIS, FRANCE: The main structure of Notre-Dame cathedral in central Paris has been saved after hours of fire-fighting to put out a devastating blaze, the city's top fire official said late Monday.
    "We can consider that the main structure of Notre-Dame has been saved and preserved," Paris fire brigade chief Jean-Claude Gallet told reporters outside the cathedral, adding it appeared that the two main towers of the building had now been saved.
    French firefighters were racing Monday to save Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris after a colossal fire caused the spire of the historic edifice to crash to the ground and wiped out centuries of heritage.

    Great job by the firefighters!

    But I don't get this appeal for money
    The Catholic Church sits on billions
    I believe the Govt owns it and leases it to the Church by why not look to the Church to pay for it

    Sick of those weasels

    Bloody sad that it happened, but at least they saved the main structure. I wonder about all the art work inside?

    As far as the cost of repair is concerned I tend to agree with Paulie.

    I visited Paris 2 years ago and went to Notre Dame. A magnificent building with a long long history.
    But I never had a hunch that this could happen.
