[QUOTE=nibtrix;116817434]I can't get over this house...

The weird columns . . .



I think the columns are structural, and part of the original industrial building - the bottoms of them seem to be in the TV-room-cum-gymnasium (why are the supports for the weights positioned so that the bar will is directly in the way of anybody trying to get in/out of the sofa and directly in the line-of-sight to the TV - you're stuffed if there's a heavy set of weights attached and you can't lift the bar off the get to the seats.

And how close is the top of those stairs to the ceiling? - all the ceilings look quite low actually. And there seems to be a distinct lack of electrical sockets around the place.

The last time I saw something like this was in 2005 when the film Downfall was released - the one set largely in the Fuhrerbunker during the last days of the Third Reich (without all the shag-pile obviously).

Ard Mhor sits between Brookview estate, which is Brookfield, and Citywest.

IIRC Ard Mhor was originally built as either affordable housing or shared ownership. Some Respond housing association units in there too, have a friend (who ironically works for SDCC housing section) living in a Respond apartment there.
One does not simply walk into Ard Mhor.

According to the Property Registration Authority's landdirect.ie, Ard Mor, and the house in question, is in Fortunestown:

Fortunestown, which is not Jobstown.

Barony: Newcastle.

Jobstown ends at Jobstown Road and there are a couple of estates that divide Jobstown and Ard Mhor, Swiftbrook, Russell Court, Brookview and MacUilliam among them.

@Nullzero, I haven't been up to visit my friend in Ard Mhor since Christmas 2019 (covid) so its been a while! I agree it has gone very downhill since it was built.

It looks like a 1980's function room in a 30 bed hotel in Leitrim.

Be handy to be able to open the door to guests while in the bath.

I sort of like it.
If somebody comes to the door you can nearly open the door whilst in the bath and you can also keep an eye on your dinner cooking.

The worst thing is, as soon as I saw it I didn't think 'jesus the bath and toilet are in the main area' Instead I thought 'the angle of that bath wastes space a bit'

Well believable that this is real and I need to find out if it is or not

It's a movable bath. Once you've finished you can bring it over to the sink and wash your dishes in it and then back over to the toilet and dump the contents down the Jack's.
