I toured a real mid-century gem just outside of Minneapolis 11 or 12 years ago. 1 bedroom 1 bath. 4000 sq feet. 2 kitchens, so many living spaces, fireplaces etc on like 3 acres on the Mississippi. The previous owner was a single pilot for the old Northwest airlines, which was based in Minneapolis at the time. He spent a fortune on that place. I imagine it was his swinging bachelor pad. Some where to host parties and have fun with the sexy stews.

All that but only one bathroom?  Did the one bathroom have two toilets?  What it something happens?

Of all the faux castles we've seen here, this one is the least faux.

At least, it's better than that one with all the vinyl siding everyplace.

For historical accuracy you should poop in the moat. Hey, where is the moat? Also, is it going to be possible to heat that? It is not finished or insulated on the inside. Maybe the climate is mild? Are there any electric outlets or do you use torches? Is there a kitchen, or do you just build a fire and roast stuff? Some of the flooring appears to be plywood. I dunno.

Thw home os gorgeous and all but what dumvass are you going to talk into spending that kinda dosh in rural Idaho? That os an area where old folks go to die. It is an area where bigotry runs like water and stupidity is the biggest state export. So big it beats out both Idaho Russets and onions by a factor of 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 to 1.

1. Who has 7 million dollars in Northern Idaho? Or has 7 million dollars and wants to move to Northern Idaho?

2. Based on the location I just have to assume this house has white supremacy somewhere in it's backstory.

I don't think there's any such thing as "mild climate" in Idaho when winter comes around the end of August and stays until May.

I found an abandoned frontier town (built in the 1950s) in Montana I think for a little over a million about a week ago

Hang on? That's in rural Idaho?
The winters must be brutal.
No windows and no insulation.

Castles would have a suite for the head honcho, and the rest would sleep in the great hall. Pallets of straw with their own blankets. It was safe housing for the servants, and a reminder for visiting nobles they could go home to the comfort of their own bed at any time.

You would think a $7M home would have something other then plywood flooring.  I guess plywood is expensive these days.

Yeah, you obviously only know about the area through your echo chamber.

But I'm not surprised. Nobody who talks about a state around here doesn't actually know what they're talking about.

That region of Idaho is not just a bunch of rural rednecks. That's some of the most prime resort living in the country.

Sandpoint and Couer d'Alene are exactly the type of place I'd expect to find $7 million houses.
 
2022-07-31 12:26:49 AM  
Nice place, but I don't have $7 million handy.  Maybe I'll just lay seige to it instead.

Azz Pumper: You would think a $7M home would have something other then plywood flooring.  I guess plywood is expensive these days.


LOL, what do you think they put under your carpet? Do you think laminate flooring and hardwood floors attach to the foundation or something? Gummi Bears?

It's either OSB or plywood. This place was built this year, it's obviously unfinished. Hence, bare floors. Hell, could even be temporary so whoever actually buys it can choose.
 
2022-07-31 12:32:14 AM  
What happened to whoever commissioned that? Or, are you trying to get me to believe someone just decided to build and try to sell a castle in farking Idaho?

/Also, is it just me or does that look half-finished at best?
 
2022-07-31 12:32:24 AM  
For that price, I expect all the floors to be more than subflooring, not just most of them. I'm out.

And just as obviously while I knew that, I had to purposefully ignore your intended meaning in order to make a joke. For that is how jokes may sometimes function. Otherwise there would be no humor, let alone point.

Ok so I was curious and looked it up. Turns out the guy is just a nerd who likes medieval stuff. He designed the castle with Lego bricks. It's the Lego castle IRL.

The "loo" was literally an airgap window where you would crap into the moat below.  Not really big on plumbing in medieval castles.

Nice castle but two notes:  (a) it's in Idaho and (b) the woodwork does not impress me. Flimsy two by fours, which as anybody even remotely connected to the forest industries knows, is far short of two inched by four and wouldn't stand up to the weight of cardboard walls. If the Britons invade, they'll be able to knock it down with coconuts and win all you plushies.

They had wooden latrine seats, but you risked getting an arrow up the bum, which is what the Norman archers  really did to King Harold at Battle, Hastings.

Magorn: That place is half-finished.  and this place is very nearby almost the same sq ft, finished and half the price


The interior is nearly all taupe, but livened up a bit with contrasting splashes of tan and beige.

It's like Mr Bland Builds His Dream House
