Looks like someone's house is tumbling down the side of a cliff! Let's GO!

Are those reinforced rust proofed tempered iron and steel girder supports?

I might do it if those are reinforced rust proofed tempered iron and steel girder supports.

I can see that, but I have to wonder what level of earthquake would finally shake it loose; probably 6 or above?

Also as far as defying gravity... what goes up, must come down eventually. Might take a hundred years or so, but eventually nature wins, whether it's because the underlying base failed, or the poles rusted out/got too stressed, moisture, insects, plants... yeah. Life After People was a fascinating show but after a while that was pretty much what it all boiled down to.

Years and years ago, I had a dream where a guy made of fire was chasing me all over town.  I got tired of running and confronted him.  Turns out he was a real estate agent who wanted to sell me this house (which was located in a campus parking lot for some reason).

And I was gonna post the lethal weapon pic but someone beat me to it while I was typing.

That's some fancy engineering for a butt-ugly house.

The bland '80s decor isn't doing it any favours either.

That's not very much

If I were to drop a million on a house it would be something more elegant than an ugly rectangle on sticks.

I love a really good view, but more than anything else, I like being serene in the knowledge that my house is firmly based on a well-anchored concrete slab far from any precipitous drops.

I wonder how they calculate square footage on that property. If along the surface, he could pay less by cutting into the cliff to make a flat spot, and building on it.

But from outside, all that separates you from the ground 25 metres below, is one giant jump into the abyss.

...and 20 heavy duty support beams. But, sure, let's pretend this house is architecturally unsound because it doesn't have a concrete foundation immediately beneath it.

To be fair, you can't get drunk and fall 25 meters off the back yard. I've tried.

316 meters per hour is like.. 0.2 mph

I might do it if those are reinforced rust proofed tempered iron and steel girder supports.


when it rains enough to turn a significant portion of that hillside soil to mud, gravity is going to pull that mud downslope and all that reinforced rust proofed tempered iron and steel girders are going down slope with it.

Not all at once, no.

Ha. Not spiffy at all. Ugly, an eyesore to the neighbors, doesn't fit in at all with the surrounding area, and a view of the entire neighborhood--not some sweeping vista of the beautiful ocean. it looks like a shoebox rammed into the side of a hill. Gee, I wonder why the price was cut in half.
