Showed it to Twinkle snd she thought it was cool too. Kinda a cross or mix between castle, woodland fairies, cave, medieval, and treehouse. I'd love to go see it.

Wow!  Someone really loves rocks! LOL!  Couldn't you just see it full of rustic log furniture and grapevines though? 

Actually that is the conversation Twinkle and I had over breakfast. What types of furniture could go in this place and look right? We came up with the rustic logs and stone benches but we had a problem thinking of what cushions or bedding, etc. would look like. We couldn't come up with anything we really liked. It would be tough job to keep it all in the theme, imo.

man that's some SERIOUS trompe l'oeil going on! Imagine how many hours must have gone into doing that whole house. I like it but fear it would soon grow old on me if I lived there.

thanks for the link Sarah. I enjoyed looking at this house.

Soft goods like cushions, upholstered seating etc., would probably be good in foresty greens. The house is too much of muchness.

 

I once considered painting my bedroom with trees, but there was just too much wall to paint. Later I thought maybe a forest of birches would look nice in my bathroom, but I decided I was too lazy to do it. Besides, I found a can of leftover paint in the basement that was perfect for the bathroom.

 

I noticed a house down the street from the rock house was going for much more.

It's a beautiful house. Thank you for sharing such a unique find.

I agree that it would be hard to furnish and have it blend well.

I also agree with Holly that it would be a 'bear to keep clean'. I can't imagine the time it would take to clean between the rocks/stones as well as clean the smooth textures.

Then, there is the fact that it is so close to other houses. That would be a culture shock when one walked out the door.

But it does have a lot of square footage inside....

 

Thanks again for sharing.

This brings to mind a room I decorated for a 10-year-old in a jungle/beach theme. Photos in Gallery,  although will far fewer rocks!

 

Here's what strikes me about the house: the pebbly surfaces in the kitchen. Even with the small amount of frying/sauteing that we do, we still get a light greasy build-up that needs to be wiped off frequently. Can't imagine having to clean the nooks and crannies of the pebbles.

I just returned from my sisters 12th century stone chateau in France. All of the interior walls are stone. I helped her vacuum each stone to get rid of their recent construction dust and cobwebs. What dust collectors stones are!

I wondered if some of it in the kitchen was faux stone, maybe a flooring product of some sort or even faux stone painting. I would think real stone would be too heavy for the cabinet doors to be able to stay on their hinges.

Very cool, but I would have to tame it down a bit - put in more normal kitchen cabinets and maybe paint some of those 'stone' and 'brick' walls in basic paint!   And really- is a stone painted toilet really necessary?  LOL  I'd keep some of the unique murals as an accents, but put in more normal fixtures!   WAY too much for me!

I was showing someone else this morning and it says sale pending.  Someone must have fallen in love with it. As an interesting sidebar, my mother hung some wallpaper for my aunt that was stones.  I hope whoever buys it doesn't redo all the work...that kitchen is a definite gut job though :)

Wow! A lot of work has gone into it, but a fair bit of it pretty ugly in my opinion. I would hate to have to clean that shower! Some amazing art which I think is pretty clever, but not sure I'd want either the faux brick or the tin foil on my walls....

      Intro of my project HERE
      LIVING ROOM
      I always loved Tudor architecture. I live here in Los Angeles and there is A LOT of 1920s built Tudor homes that have always caught my eye.  Living in a 1920s building myself, I always loved the finished and details that you just don't see in modern day constructions.  Thus, leading me to focus my finishes and details around the 1920s. 
            
      Photo 1:
      For the living room, I decided nothing would look richer than to do dark stained floor to ceiling paneling. I think to achieve this I plan on creating secondary walls traced from the kit walls out of the same kit style wood. Doing all the finishes and wiring and then gluing the wall into place directly over a kit wall. This is still a theory so stay tuned to see the work in progress.
      Photo 2:
      I thought a carved stone fireplace would look great with the wall paneling. Luckily, I found THIS ONE which will be really easy to paint and inset into the existing fireplace cavity. 

      Photo 3:
      The provided staircase with the kit is cute and all, but not good enough for this project.  My goal is to make this as to-scale as possible with as much detail as possible so I plan on making the stairs a bit more grand and intricate. I love the look of the heavy balusters and the square newel posts. I think it will be easy to achieve using pre made staircase pieces and just hand making the newel posts out of square dowels and some baseboard moulding trimmed down.  Like I said above.... we'll see how this theory plays out. 
      Photo 4:
      Lastly is the ceiling. The first picture has a hint of this finish but the last picture shows what I want in a bit more detail. White plaster ceiling with heavy crossed beams, trimmed with a small crown moulding.  I have a feeling that this is going to be a pain. If anyone has any suggestions on how to do a detailed ceiling like that please share! 
      Stay Tuned for my next post: Dining Room Inspiration

      This is going to be a little macabre. I noticed this a few months ago, but never posted. Tonight I figure why not share my thought to see if I am crazy or if other people see it.
       
      Ed Gein is called a serial killer by many. He actually only killed two women, but stole a bunch of bodies from a graveyard. He made bowls out of skulls. He made a wastebasket out of human skin and, well, look him up. For those of you that haven't heard of him, Google him. Okay, so I was watching one of those Investigation Discovery shows and it was about Gein. They showed some film of his house. I backed up the video three or four times because the resemblance is UNCANNY.
       
      You tell me ... How similar are his house and the Dura Craft Farmhouse??? Lose the dormers and the fancy trim and slide the front door over.
       
      ...and before anyone asks -- no, I don't think I am going to build it that way (although it is an idea).
