    Painted a house a few years back with a waterfall from second story down to basment, you opened the front door and that's the first thing you saw.

    He also had a huge compass imprinted In his driveway.

    Ever stayed at Azuridge?
    That used to be a private residence and they barely had to do anything to it to make it a hotel.
    Fuck. Off. It's. Extravagant.

    True - but the room was completely empty. No furniture - almost as if it was used for some kind of psi effect or something? I couldn't stay inside too long as I was getting vertigo.

    Did the wood refinishing out there for a summer job when it was recently sold to Haworth office furniture.
    Insanely great lot, views, and epic garage.


    Rumor was that it was built by a Bre-X top guy.

    There is no secret. It was a guy named Mogens Smed's house.
    Now formerly of DIRTT but I don't believe he was ever BreX.

    Formerly of DIRTT?

    Or do you mean, "formerly of SMED"... SMED closed down, became DIRTT (Do It Right This Time).

    I went to high school with some of the Smed boys and got to see the house, as a house, on a couple of occasions.

    It was SMEDs. I’ve been there many years ago delivering appliances no less.

    He would entertain huge clients as his company did office furniture sales and instal.

    I heard some stories about that place, oh boy. Those who know, know.
    "The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents... some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new Dark Age."

    Both. He's been fired from DIRTT (the company he founded, after) and already got another company going, which DIRTT is suing him for claiming violation of non-compete clause.
    Your personal Azuridge butler will tell you all about Mogens while he gives you a tour of the property.

    Edit: his new company is called Falk, partly because he doesn't want to... You figure it out!

    I was talking to a friend about custom built homes, and she mentioned one of her friends had built one and had a slide from the second to the first floor. These people did not have children.
    This is crazy. I have a friend in Greece and she is buying property in Athens where she will have a slide from the terrace on the 2nd floor to the swimming pool outside. Probably it's a lot of fun.

    How about a full hockey arena with proper boards & glass, score clock, stands, multiple dressing rooms and a zamboni? Yep, just South of town.

    If it was, the city could just buy it and save $500 million on a new arena.

    There was a house with a legal airstrip and attached hangar for sale down by nanton recently.

    That would be epic.

    What kind of peasant needs an airstrip? The kind of poser who can't afford a helicopter.

    Helicopters tend to be good in the city - or nearby areas. Most small planes will get you longer distances, faster and cheaper.

    Also, much easier learning curve and more forgiving on average, than a helicopter.
