If you could live anywhere but in a building, what & where could that possibly be?

Asked by ucme (45781points) August 22nd, 2010

Yeah leaving aside a house or hotel or whatever, if given the choice what would you choose to call your home. A yacht maybe or a trailer/camper van? Maybe you’d prefer a life in the wilds pitching your tent as you travel (yeah that’s maybe stretching things a little) Whatever, speaking hypothetically here, make your choice for an alternative abode….or don’t. It’s really up to you now isn’t it?

I wouldn’t mind owning a RV and traveling around.

One of those big wide river-boat/barge things like in the film Anaconda…

On Salma’s Beachfront property I would even be her cabana boy.

ucme's avatar

@SeventhSense Yeah that’s one gorgeous view. I’m afraid however i’d have to adopt the role of alpha male so, best man wins & all that :¬)

@ucme
I trust Salma could buy any dog she wanted.

I call dibs on the igloo. The one with the indoor jacuzzi and theater. Yup.

SeventhSense's avatar

An igloo with a jacuzzi would be sweet. Although it would be “a jacuzzi with a previous igloo surrounding it” in short order.

I’d choose the Tardis, but the Doctor hasn’t found me yet.

jeffgoldblumsprivatefacilities's avatar

@SeventhSense yeah, but then I’ll have that skylight I always wanted.

Aster's avatar

There is a yacht that you can buy into. You have your own rooms and 24 room service. It circles the globe constantly and that’s where you get your mail. I’d think that would be more comfortable than an RV although pricier. haha got that tee shirt

@jeffgoldblumsprivatefacilities
You’ll have the whole sky. :)

Forest tree house

River steamboat

Mountain cave

muppetish's avatar

@rebbel Those are beautiful. I would love waking up every morning just to breathe if I lived in a tree.

JilltheTooth's avatar

@muppetish : Hey, I want the Tardis too! Either that or the 50’ ketch I want to sail across the Pacific in.

Ron_C's avatar

When I did a job in Tennessee I saw huge houseboats. I would really like to live on one of those. Just think; waking up in the morning and jumping into a pristine lake with no neighbors for miles. Sounds like heaven to me.

Aethelwine's avatar

@Ron_C My choice too. :)

Ron_C's avatar

@jonsblond something about being on the water makes me horny. If we lived in a houseboat we would have probably had more than two kids.

kenmc's avatar

A barn or a gutted van with room for a bed, stove, and shit like that.

Seaofclouds's avatar

@rebbel I love those tree houses. I wouldn’t mind living in one of those either.

rebbel's avatar

@muppetish @Seaofclouds
They are great, eh?!
I dream about building one myself one day.
dreaming…dreaming…dreaming

Ever since reading Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance and then seeing Easy Rider, I’ve wanted a huge bankroll, a sweet bike (like a 70s Triumph), and good camping gear. Then I’d just roam the world.

Simone_De_Beauvoir's avatar

@cockswain That’s one of my favorite books, ever!

cockswain's avatar

@Simone_De_Beauvoir me too. really opened my mind at the time.

In Perkins‘s_tent Easy to set up and pack while roaming the world.

zophu's avatar

A durable medium-tech yurt set up that would act as a reliable shelter for even months at a time, but be portable enough for one or two people to carry places where vehicles could not reach.

Frenchfry's avatar

I would live in a cave..

SamIAm's avatar

I think houseboats are rad but I don’t know if I could actually do it…

Berserker's avatar

I want a creepy looking keep or castle in the Carpathians. With running electricity please, so I can watch vampire movies as I bask in my solitude.

cockswain's avatar

@Symbeline A castle is a building. Disqualified!

Berserker's avatar

Disqualify this. ’‘Rallies skeleton archers’’

@ucme
P.S.- Salma Lives in America. You remember. The place where we kicked you British Biscuits out of? Cheerio and all that..

Jeruba's avatar

A tree house would have been my first choice, but isn’t that a building? How is it not?

Mom2BDec2010's avatar

The biggest yacht that exists.

augustlan's avatar

@Jeruba Curses, foiled again. In that case, I’m going to have to go with a deserted island. One with plenty of fresh water and food, and no big scary animals, please. :)

Coloma's avatar

In a grove of Banana trees on Bali.

Jeruba's avatar

So then, if a tree house is out: for fun, I’d say a circus wagon or train (especially after reading Water for Elephants); for real, probably a stationary trailer.

ucme's avatar

@SeventhSense Wow!! You brooded over that for a while, sheesh! I was going to offer you sloppy seconds as well. You colonial putz you. Okay a nerve has been struck with you, she clearly means that much. I tell you what, keep her. See it as a kind of personal favour….....no, no need for thanks.

ucme's avatar

Thanks for the input everyone. I must say a tree house should qualify as a building. However the sentiment remains intact, I appreciate the point. Besides, who wouldn’t welcome residing in such opulent surroundings? I know i’d certainly be up for a spot of tree dwelling :¬)

OpryLeigh's avatar

A gypsy style caravan with a horse to pull me along. When I say caravan I do not mean the sheds that you see Volvos pulling down the M5!

ucme's avatar

@Leanne1986 Oh I know of which you speak. My grandad used to make models of them out of ice lolly sticks. Far more pretty to look at than the square boxes being dragged along the motorways.

cockswain's avatar

@ucme Is an ice lolly stick the same as a popsicle stick?

ucme's avatar

@cockswain Absolutely is!

cockswain's avatar

Ice lolly stick sounds way kinkier.

ucme's avatar

Don’t it just.

SeventhSense's avatar

@ucme
No I was out living my life before I caught up to it. Nerve? More like gall when you decided to get into a pissing contest with me.
Q: What’s the surest sign one is not an alpha male?
A: He calls himself an alpha male.

ucme's avatar

@SeventhSense Living your life, for all of ten minutes, yeah. I’d better move on it’s abundantly clear that you’re either about eight years old or extremely deluded. It was you who started said pissing contest. Wow i’m having one of those hilarious online tiffs. It really is that pathetic, amazing!!
Q: What is the surest sign someone is spoiling for a fight?
A: They pick the bones out of the merest hint of imagined criticism

cockswain's avatar

Ice his lolly stick @ucme !

ucme's avatar

@cockswain Well he does appear to be a frosty individual, certainly not cool though. I shall stop following this question as of now, for it’s beneath me, it truly is. Now….where was I? Oh yeah, peaceville, honey i’m home!!
