    Impressive! A very brave man to have built this on top of a mountain. How did he manage to haul all that metal up there?

      Well Rosee the turret was cut into pieces and carried up there using horses, it took them 7 days to built, here are too videos that describe the building of the shelter , where you can see the first collapsible bunkbeds (at the end of the part 2) , the videos have a very bad quality but couldnt find better ones…

    I think battleship, I think sea-level, as in ‘ocean’, as in ‘way down there’. Then, move chunks of it to a barren tree-less mountain top. Huh?

    Pink foundation. Huh?

    Yeah, I get the PV panels. This looks above the clouds, plenty of sun. Fewer pesky neighbors to generate shadows, so there’s that.

    Living in a big baked potato! Why not!

      I have been told that even in winter, they have to sleep a lot of times with the door open beacause of the heat and condensation, that make drips fall from the top O.o And that its very rare that a lightning strikes it because its surrounded by a lot of higher peaks that attract them.

    If I were going to go to that kind of trouble it wouldn’t be built on the moon. I’d want a better view then that.
