Worldโ€™s most beautiful clock towers
A welcoming view in San Francisco San Franciscoโ€™s Ferry Building, a Beaux-Arts building with a 245ft-tall tower, was the cityโ€™s primary point for arrivals and departures between 1898 and the late 1930s, when the Golden Gate and Bay bridges were built. Inside, a 660ft-long skylit atrium that once provided access to ferries now houses shops and restaurants, including Blue Bottle Coffee and the Asian restaurant Slanted Door. It is especially crowded on Saturday mornings when a farmersโ€™ market takes over the space in front and in the rear of the building, overlooking the bay. (Julie Clarke-Bush) Colombia's grand gateway From a mosque-like tower in Malaysia to one of Londonโ€™s most iconic structures, these five landmarks were designed to stand the test of time. In Colombia, the four-sided Torre del Reloj gate grants access to the most charming part of Cartagena โ€“ a walled section of 18th-century mansions, leafy squares and street cafes. The tower and clock were added in 1888; in the foreground, a statue of city founder Pedro de Heredia keeps watch. (Guillermo Vasquez/Flickr) Pragueโ€™s macabre mainstay Clockmaker Hanuลก, who perfected Pragueโ€™s Old Town Hall Tower in 1490, was supposedly blinded so that he wouldnโ€™t make a more beautiful version elsewhere. As the perfect revenge, Hanuลก stopped the clock from functioning, and it was 100 years before someone would figure out how to repair it. The clock is known for its 12 marching apostles; a skeleton on the right, depicting Death, starts the show by pulling on a string and looking at his other hand, in which he holds an hourglass. Then, two windows open, allowing the apostles to make their moves. A magnificent late-Gothic door in the adjacent house serves as the main entrance to the Old Town Hall. (Reed Kaestner/Corbis) Moorish notes in Malaysia Completed in 1897 by the British colonial administration, the Sultan Abdul Samad Building anchors Kuala Lumpurโ€™s Merdeka Square. Its Moorish style can be attributed to the mosques that architect AC Norman observed while in India. The Union Jack flag was replaced by the Malaysian flag on 31 August 1957, and many national events have taken place here since. (Boris Henriot) A storied sight in London โ€œBig Benโ€ was originally a nickname used for the gargantuan bell inside the London clock tower. These days, the moniker refers to the bell, the clock face and the 315ft tower too โ€“ though the beloved icon was officially renamed the Elizabeth Tower in 2012, as part of Queen Elizabeth IIโ€™s Diamond Jubilee celebration. Built from the inside out, the stone and granite tower got its finishing touch with the clock towerโ€™s installation in 1859. The cast-iron minute hands proved too heavy, so they were replaced with todayโ€™s lighted copper hands. (Paul Hardy/Corbis)
The Best Way To Live: Tiny Houses
Tiny Houses have become the latest craze for younger people looking to spend most of their time outside, enjoying nature. Buying a house is expensive and can take up so much space on land you would rather use to garden, farm, hunt, or just enjoy as natural as it comes. Which is why tiny houses are becoming HUGE (see what I did there). With prices usually around $40,00 for an entire (sometimes) portable house, couples or solo land owners are finding it much easier to be able to afford an actual place of their own. And yes they can be portable! The main thing you pay for with your tiny house is land, so when you want to head out just hitch up your house, by another plot of land, and plop yourself down. Its like having an RV but way more....homey. Tiny Houses are defined as livable houses under 400 sqft Small Houses are defined as livable houses under 1000 soft Both are pretty tiny, but when done right can be amazing! Check out these pictures of Tiny Houses and try not to head straight to the bank! Here is a tiny house that has some style! The point of these houses are to embrace being in the outdoors which is why some houses have outside add ons. This house is doing things right with an added hot tub! Small and Tiny Houses can look amazing and way more spacious with huge windows. These windows also help you still connect with nature, even when you are indoors. Told you some houses can be portable! Not feeling where you live anymore? Just hook your house up to a truck and you can be across the country in a day. With tiny houses you can get creative with the design. Some even look like a hobbits houses which is really cool! Not all tiny houses need to be made out of wood! There are a ton of modern tiny houses that are perfect for a couple that needs minimal space! On the inside the main goal is to go up! Most things are stacked so that there is ample room but still an uncluttered space. The bed is usually a loft which helps leave tons of room for the downstairs living area. Proof that tall people can still have tiny houses! This man is pretty tall yet looks completely comfortable in his little house. Tiny and small houses aren't for everyone. They can get cramped, especially when its time to cook dinner, but for those outdoorsy people who hate being stuck indoors, tiny houses offer the perfect solution. Why waste money on a house you don't care about, or force yourself to live in an apartment that is in a town or city? Tiny houses can give the nature lovers a place of their own to live, connect with nature, and limit their carbon footprint. And that is AWESOME. Check out this very informative and funny video about living in tiny homes and how it can and will save you time and stress in the long run!
