Starry Night

A renovated old maintenance barn. The cylindrical structure has a large cistern tank at top to collect rain water which is filtered and used for bathing and waste in the bathroom below. From there the waste water is processed below the bathroom for use in the garden for water and fertilizer. The sky is a picture taken by the astronomer Haken Dahle at the La Silla European Southern Observatory in Chile. For the original source click here.

    Fabulous, Russ! And I don't have a clue how you did the ceiling. Sooner or later I'll have to take a peak.  Oh I just realize I commented on it already. I wasn't around a year ago.

    Russ, about "cats ate my writtings" means that many things that I had written for you disappeared. I had put the address of my page on Polyvore, and many many other things. But it's Okay, no problem. When I finish my creation with that incredible balcony made by you, I'll send the address for you to visit my page on Polyvore. You will be very welcome! See you later!

    Russ, I'm going to write again. My designs have been hidden because I'm changing some things, for example I'm looking for some designers who I haven't seen any news about them, and I have put my designs on Pinterest like other designs from here. I'm happy because you really like my creations but they'll be public only on Pinterest. I'm active giving hearts, and comments. In fact I'm more active on Polyvore where I have old friends who were already active here. I'm sad because moodboards are dying, and there was a time that moodboards had another tool to create them. Continue making your room designs because they are very special creations!

    I love it!!! It's brilliant!!!I agree with Mum Dali, you did fantastic work again!!!!And the story!! Wow, you thought of everything! How you can, collect the rainwater and re-use it, amazing! It's perfect Russ!!!

    We went on a trip  to 'Wetsus' with school yesterday, I've learned a lot about (wasted) water and environment. I can't translate what Wetsus is but it is explained here http://www.wetsus.nl/home/what-is-wetsusI've learned so much, and especially the building was amazingly stunning!! You can find a picture of the building on their site: http://www.wetsus.nl/
    And here is a photo I made from inside (it's just a part of inside, I couldn't get everything get on camera in one photo ) http://www.mediafire.com/view/w5jo83s2bj1sjaf/IMAG0834.jpg
