My wife's family are all fire-fighters. They agree with me about wanting a fire pole that runs from the main floor to my man cave in the basement. My wife on the other hand keeps saying "no way".

I knew someone who had a fire pole in their house when I was a kid. Sadly, I never got to try it.
 
2022-06-08 2:38:56 PM  
I love it, just for the amount of natural light.

Then tell her it's not a "fire pole" it's a "Bat-Pole." Totally different, I'm tellin ya...

fire pole / stripper pole - why argue semantics?

That kitchen is terrible.  They had to put seating right in the middle because you'd be exhausted, walking constantly from one end to the other.

And if I'm spending that kind of money, I'd better be on something larger than a freaking half acre.  My McMansion is on a half acre and isn't worth anything close to their asking price.

CSB:

A few years ago I did a tour at the New Belgium brewery.  They are very generous with their samples.  At the end, they bring you to a staircase just like this one that leads down to the taproom.  I stepped up and was going to take the stairs when my wife, a little tipsy by this time, hollers at me to take the slide.

I put a foot down, it slid out from under me and I tumbled down that slide.  Like Kung Fu Panda out of a chute. Like Sonic in the Emerald Hill zone. I hit the ground at the bottom hard.  But I got another free sampler out of it, so it was totally worth it.

Highly recommend that brewery tour.

Jeez, how much wasted space? You would need another 4M just in furniture just to fill it.

I would roll so many bowling balls down that slide. If I had the money for that house, I'd have the  money to go to the bowling ball store and say
"Gimmie 50...no...100 of your best bowling balls please. A mix of all the weights you have. I have something I need to try. Also...do you know where I could get like 20 cats?"

Oh great, then I'll need to get a bust of Shakespeare and a sliding book-case too.

My good dear friend who lives in Southampton, NY needed a new door for his basement theatre/room. I had told him to get a sliding bookcase as a door.

He loved the idea, hired some contractors to do the work but at the last minute decided it wasn't worth it and just went with a normal door.

I wouldn't mind a mention of slide mishap in the obit when drunk me shuffles off this mortal coil after a night of bourbon and decides the stairs are too hard- I'll crawl up the slide!

eKonk: Fark that, I want a stripper pole.


I get a kick, when people install those portable stripper poles and don't attach it correctly and then they go to take a swing, and boom, down comes the pole, bits of the celling and everything. It amazes me how people don't understand physics.

It looks like some padding that was put down to make it more comfortable for extended standing while cooking/baking

I agree, the color doesn't match at all. My guess it's to prevent slipping or something. Or maybe it's padded for folks who spend too much time in the kitchen.

All those rafters and shiat looks pretty cool.

Until it's cleaning time.

Also, flooding.

OK, Yeah, $4M is a bit steep.  I love the decor, I love the light, I love the kitchen. The Bar's cool, but you'd think if you already have two sinks, why not put one there too? Not a big deal.

Two real issues.  That's a lot of flat roof for a place as snowy as Madison. And there is a woeful dearth of bookshelves. What good is money if you don't buy books?

urinal mints are the same colour, maybe a deodorizing surface that melts away when you pee on it?

That appears to be the same texture and color as batting we use to clean up oil spills

i'm guessing its some kind of protectant for the wood floor below disguised as a "carpet" that was marked up a million percent

oldfarthenry: Nude people might dislike slides - especially if they're damp &/or sweaty.


Good point.  Need a basket of throw rugs up top for sky clad descent, and another basket on the bottom to drop them off.  If you take the last one from upstairs, you put a flag in the basket, so the next person going up knows to take the basket with them (probably on wheels, to the elevator), and if there's an empty basket upstairs, you take it down the slide with you.

You're right, but I still want it.

It's like a McMansion designed by a tech bro who spent all of his life working in open office layouts. I swear I've interviewed at tech companies that looked like this.

Stripper poles are on bearings and rotate.

The floor in the kitchen is ruined, so they put some FLOR carpeting over it.

It's impressively large. The electric bill in the winter is probably a real eye-popper.

You need to defer to the professionals on this one.
