cause then you get all the sweet chicks.
have fun with the maintenance costs for the lighthouse!
but I'm assuming that there's a sweet low-cost maintenance contract built in.
no i don't think there is
i'm going to use it as a HOUSE
-more literary credibility
-cool ocean view
-if you have kids then you can call yourselves the lighthouse family
-get to play with a giant light
-can make ships crash and then loot the wreckage
-more likely to be haunted by a cool ghost
Drowned to death!
for me without the need for expensive apparatus
which would be irritating
would rather look over some cliffs than acres of fenland / broadland
because there is absolutely nothing cool about windmills.
They both rock!
They're mostly designed to be lived in so would be nicer to live in than a converted building.
Also sea >>>>countryside.
producing rather than consuming
As the insides are normally full of machinery.
Lighthouses are built for living in, but they could be on an isolated rock miles from land. I think that would send me mad.
and row to shore, while wearing a hat like this: http://www.classickidstv.co.uk/wiki/images/3/37/Round_The_Twist_Nell_%28Bunny_Brooke%29_2.jpg
looks like loads of fun, at least it did in The Adventures of Portland Bill
I'd rather live in the country than on a wave battered rocky outcrop.
so windmill. Windmills are cosy.
Therefore I will go with B, Dale. Lighthouse.
Just because I liked the kids series Round The Twist. Have you ever felt like this?
no need to worry about trends when it comes to home exteriors.
nice view (probably).
inability to hang pictures/mirrors.
probably meansh you live in da nederlandsh.
probably really cold inside.
inability to hang pictures/mirrors (again).
relentless whirring noise.
'corner' this specialised market.
Or use posters.
Or put them on the ceiling an floor (laminate them with a heavy duty clear floor laquer)
then you could grow your own *******.
and have great fun experimenting with visual effects on your big light.
Imagine in the fog, you could put the silhouette of a ghost on the lights lense.....perhaps jazz up what you play over the foghorn speakers
Although aren't most windmills hexagonal (or other shape with straight edges)
it's more likely that you're gonna live down the road from thewarn. decide for yourself how this affects the weighting
or you could have the best of both worlds
I've seen Evil Dead 3
There's a lighthouse near my parents house that I have already picked out, it has a killer fog horn.
There's a lighthouse near us too. It's on my running course. http://www.flickr.com/photos/easylocum/5134045528/
I'd also like to get married in a lighthouse but it would mean only inviting about twenty people.
Imagine the sunsets!
then you could grind your own **********
you could also set up a sort of mechanical music box chime (on a large scale) to be driven by the rotating shaft. You could also set up fancy holographic patterns on the sails (for the day) and LEDs on the sails that flash in a pattern (like the music box principle) for the night. (the sails can also be comprised of solar panelling material to increase power collection.
but it didnt have parking for two
...i'd probably go round the twist though
I think of it being in some nice rolling countryside, surrounded by grassy meadows and wild flowers, in the height of summer. A lighthouse I think of a windy, wet, remote coast. I suspect both would be quite remote really. It all depends on where they are. I'd take a nice lighthouse near some nice beaches but a normal sized town somewhere nearby, Cornwall preferably, but not one at the North of scotland on a rock somewhere. I'd take a windmill somewhere in Kent, but again not somewhere in Scotland. Just not Scotland I suppose.
