My dream home has always been a glass cube....not!

Too hot when the suns out, too cold in winter, too bright early in the morning, too depressing when the weather stinks.

These are the kind of houses that are built and go on the market within 2 years. No thanks.

I think if was one way glass like on the cop shows it would be perfect . I'm sure they have glass now that can change it's colour with sunlight another twist which could be applied.
I'm in I like all that natural light.

I could live in one of these houses no trouble.  I grew up in a house with large windows.  The light these brought into the house was wonderful. 


My guess is most of these houses have hidden blinds that can be used for privacy if needed.


As for living in a tent?  How big of a tent?  Most people who live in tents live far more in the public or community view than anyone in these houses.

I'd hate to be them during a zombie apocalypse! jk A house like this would only work on a big property (for privacy) shaded by trees and shrubs I mean it looks like a heat box! But it looks fantastic!

Keep in mind, this isn't in a normal track home setting.  If one can afford an all-glass home, it's most likely secluded and away from the masses.  If you can afford it and want to do so, than so be it.

The maid definitely does not do windows.

My cat would LOVE these glass houses...the one in Costa Rica with the 184 species of birds might be overstimulating for him, though. He could sit anywhere and just watch...it would be worth the money to see him in a house made of glass. :P

There's more to me and the way i think, what i think is not import: to every one but what i say is so true. We the people have forgotten every thing that allows us to live and love in life. What happen to supporting each other in a relationship ? What happen to the long drive to no where ? What happen to having a happy ending after 30,40, 50 years together with the grand kid's .


We have become a people that change are relationship like changing a cd in our car, don't like that song  change it, don't like the way they sing change it. But the real question is why did you buy it if you knew you didn't like it. So we have taken on the same way of thinking about a relationship as we do a cd, we go from bed to bed just because we don't like this or that about some one.

Stop looking for some one to do for you what you can do for self..that's there money, that's his/ her car, that's his/ her home. and they have the say about what when and who they spend there time, money, and home with..if they don't allow you to use it, then your the wrong person any way...and that only make you a one night stand for that person, and you just gave them the upper have over you, to use you.

So if he or she just hit and miss' then you allowed it to happen, they did not do any thing that you did not allow,. So why be mad at them ? The same way you change cd's change you first.

You know what i love about grand's they always say the right thing even when we don't understand what they just said, and my Grand Dad always tell me never do any thing that will change the way you thing as a person, Stop the drinking at the place where you meet Mr/Mrs/Miss wrong over and over again just change the places you go and hang out, and if that not it then change the friends who helping you think wrong....Oh he's hot NOT Oh look at that body; So NOT right there is where you went wrong..you do not need help making bad/ wrong moves in your life. What's wrong with your head ? you can't think for your-self.. what's the first thing you do about a fire ? stop drop and roll...Stop talking, don not give out your phone/ address, and get the hell out of there...before you loss every thing about you. Member this one thing the real people with the money don't show because of other people always look to ask them for there and working for it, GET YOUR not there it always comes at a price..

It seems rich people are at a loss of what to do with all their money.

"Ooh! I know! let's make an all Glass house, It'll look NICE and we will be vulnerable and visible to any bystanders who can easily see all of our valuables and steal them later!"

If you don't want to lose it all, just decorate your house a little less 'Modern' looking, because it is TOO risky.

We have a 1952-53 mid-century modern glass house in rural Florida on a river's bend.  Since all the exterior walls are 8' high glass, the river is seen from every room except the interior bathrooms which have skylights.  During the day we simply wave at the boats going by 30-50 feet away, and at night we roll down the blinds and close curtains.  The electric isn't bad since there are live oaks overhanging the roof, and in the winter we open the blinds for morning sun, and the black terrazzo floors absorb heat and hold it for much of the day.  In spring and fall we have large screens that allow a great cross breeze.  Our furnishings are definitely modern with plastic, glass and metal, but no sharp edges since we have young grandchildren.  It is all about the view, and the history.

woah nice glass houses but how much bottles of spray would you need to clean the glass!

They are certainly attractive; but I would not want to be the one to wash the windows.

...And people complain about airport scans, designed to keep us safe - go figure. Not for me! Great for "peeping Toms, and predators though.

who wants to be exposed in his own home -.- ?

Not cool - just cold.  And sterile.  And impersonal.  A skeleton with the heart and flesh melted away.
