      Correct on all counts. The other units aren't bad but mine is def the better of the 7.

      Can one of you guys PM me the link to the other spaces? Looked on Zillow and didn't see them.

      I'm a sucker for unique lofts.

      BTW: If you ever decide to get rid of the Heywood Wakefield set, let me know, I'd be interested for my 50's kitchen.

      It would be for a large sum, more than the $4,500 or so the set is worth as it has sentimental value.

      is this really the only entry to the bedroom?

      seems like ducking over and under to get in and out of there all the time would suck after a while.

      It's really not bad if you walk in at the right angle. Think of it as there being a 90 degree turn, then another 90 degree turn. I don't duck at all. I just imagine there's an invisible hallway. I'll take some pics of the gap between the beam and the angled wall to show theres plenty of room.

      I'll just say I bought it right. For what I believe is a good price, and that I can always make my money back.

      But the courtroom is on the 2nd floor. I don't think my neighbors would enjoy me driving through the front door either

      Pretty awesome place. I love unique spots like that, and the tower lookout is just too much.

      Here's a shot of the gap between the beam and the wall. Its a good 8 feet or so.



      And a walkthrough showing plenty of headroom. Camera was held at eye level. That other straight on shot is deceiving. No ducking involved.

      I admit I'm a sucker for those shows on HGTV or whatver where people convert "unusual" spaces into living quarters. Especially the missle silos, submarine docking stations etc. Nice purchase!

      1) Get aluminum foil
      2) Layer 7-8 sheets on top of each other
      3) Cut out Batman symbol
      4) Gauge response/blowback
      5) Proceed with dong cutout
