Change Your Space

build a closet

Sometimes, you can control your own architecture. What we mean is, you might not have the qualifications (yet) to design a skyscraper, but you can design and change the space where you live. So here is a teeny project that you might try if you have some space in your own room. Try this do-it-yourself

Bilbo Baggins House from Lord of the Rings

Sometimes it is funny to think about how different people spend their time. In this instance, an artist designed the home of Bilbo Baggins, from “The Hobbit” out of 2600 balloons. Jeremy Telford, the artist, lives in Utah, in what we suspect is a house NOT made of balloons. It does show that a space

Grinding Home – a Skateboarder’s Dream

Skate Boarder's Home

Ok, we know that people have passions that overtake their lives sometimes. Take that neighbor who loves Beanie Babies, with tons of the little stuffed animals covering every surface in her bedroom. Or the guy who is really into comic books and has piles of them all over the house. Well, there is a man,

Don’t drink and Draw!

House made of cork

Just kidding, you can drink as much lemonade or water that you want when you draw. But let’s face it, anyone who drinks this much wine to build a building out of corks, probably is overdoing it. Hey, is that the President of the United States in that cork building? Maybe the cork building is
