My wife and I went today to an open house at a 1930 Seattle FD fire station that is being sold. Interesting, but it would take lots of work to make it into a liveable space; plus it had no pole to slide down. Before seeing it I had thought a fire station might be a cool place to make into a house, not as good as a lighthouse, but cool nonetheless. I've lived in the past in a city park landscaper's cottage, a chicken coop turned into a house, and a yacht club boat (in exchange for maintenance on it, when I was in high school). And I've seen churches remodeled into homes, which I thought was neat too. I've never lived in a treehouse, but I had a friend in Oregon who did, hauling people and stuff up and down on a pulley system. I guess I'll keep my eye out for a lighthouse on the market....

Should be nice to live in a lighthouse.

I wouldn't consider a fire station without the slide down poll. That is the whole point in living in oneBiggrin

I agree 100%. Build your shave nook upstairs around the darn pole, then when you're through with your shave, slide down the pole for breakfast.Smile

Yeah but think how much it would cost to change a light bulb......

I'd vote for a remodel and build an indoor swimming pool around the pole. Get to the pool for the morning swim by sliding down the pole.Tongue
