Looks like this is a week for alternatives, but this one is a little less… contentious, shall we say, than the one from yesterday.
While looking at this article about Harry Redknapp’s little beach cottage, one of the pics got me thinking. While I think the house in general is awful (like Alyssa Milano: quite lovely from the outside; inside, not so much), this room is excellent:
Now I have little use for a wine cellar, being that I don’t drink a lot of wine and have no interest in collecting it either. But a temperature/humidity-controlled room, with very limited access… can we all say “Gun Room“, children?
If I ever same into something like this (assuming it was in the Land Of The Free and not Hoplophobic Britannia), I know that one of the first things I’d do is turn to the interior designer and say, “Lose all those faggy shelves and stuff, and put in some glassed gun display cases, with room for a couple-three safes on the side.” All that’s left is to have a decent, robust table somewhere with several clamps for gun cleaning and -smithing, and there ya go.
The same is true of houses that have projection rooms — in-home cinemas, as it were — which I think are a total waste of space. Here’s one, from some mega-mansion on the market here in Plano:
Once again, a room with no windows, a single door access… who the hell needs stupid Disney movies that much. when you could have a primo gun room?
I know, I’m so hopelessly out of touch.
