Design the perfect Mountaineer's Home!
« on: Sep 9 2005, 20:59 »

Hello all budding interior decorators, here's a challenge for you!

If you had no limit to the money you could spend - how would you design the perfect house for the obsessed mountaineer?

I've just bought a house and in the excitement of signing my life away on the mortgage, I'm thinking.... wouldn't it be cool to have a climbing wall, or a dry room for all that mucky gear, a library of mountaineering books...

Let's hear all those ideas!

It would need
- a climbing wall, changing often
- a ice room, below 0, so I can iceclimb
- a pressure room, simulating altitude
- a video room for inspiration
- a library for more inspiration
- Gear room!
- climbing girls ;D

Hi YarraMusha

A sauna and/or a hot tub would be great for when you get back after a long, hard day on the windy, wet, cold hills of Ireland!

I moved into a house a few months ago and I came home last Saturday to find my boots thrown outside the door and my rucksack followed shortly afterwards. No respect! Strange because the room I had them stored in is where my landlord leaves his tools and dirty boots (he's a builder) so what was wrong with a little pair of mountaineering boots?  :'( So at the moment all I want is a place where I can store my stuff without it getting dumped outside the door....  :'(

Hey Daisy!

You can dump your stuff at my place anytime  ;). I'm just not sure my wife would like the idea though ;D
