Capturing life's momentary events

The Castle House

While riding through Roswell, Georgia, I snapped this picture. It's not a museum, it's not an ancient castle, it's a real modern house. Someone actually lives here.

I've talked to someone that has toured the house. He says that the inside is all stone and concrete. "No drywall in the place." he said. There is even a moat around the "castle" that doubles as a swimming pool.

Heating is provided through the concrete floor. It's not very efficient, as the heat warms no only the concrete floor and consequently the castle, but also heats the ground underneath where no one benefits, except maybe the worms, if you count them.

It's a rather odd looking place, an anachronism to see in the middle of a residential area.

I hear they they arrange tours. We should go and take a look at the inside someday.

A man's house is his castle.
