Bob sits in a recliner arm-chair in his Other side Library-Office waiting for James to write down his words.
James: "Can you tell me some details about the drawing I did?"
Bob: "James tells me he made the drawing to show our family and friends where I am living now. I do like the drawing I might add. He spent many hours on the picture while I gave him some insights into what and where to place things. Now, if you look carefully you will notice a castle in the top left corner. That is a special castle created by a neighbor of mine, Diana, Princess Diana. Also on her large estate is a large manor that houses her staff and children she cares for who have passed on recently. She says her home is their home. The castle is a large playhouse for the children.
Now back to my home here. I didn't create a large house just for myself but made enough space for family and friends to visit. The house is larger inside than appears. You can do that here :) In fact, you can squeeze a mansion into a tiny cottage if you imagine it. There is no limit except with your mind. I had the exterior of the house decorated for the holidays by James and he also helped granddaughter Emily decorate a tree inside. James also gave me the snow. I did not want the snow on the walkway or roof. <grin>"
James: "Did you have someone help you design and create the house?"
Bob: "Yes and yes. I was given a book of house designs and I chose one but wanted some modifications. This person, the designer made the changes on the plan which was a small 3D model. In fact, I shrunk down to take a tour of the model that was like going through a fancy doll house. Now, if you create the actual house and make changes without knowing exactly what you want, you run the risk of a type of explosion that won't hurt you but will have the unexpected happen. So with a model you only have a smaller explosion if you aren't careful but it just means you have to start again until you do it correctly. Knowing exactly what you want in the design is important. He showed me more 3D house models so I could chose what interiors I liked. He then made the modifications to my model. Michael tells of a few construction mishaps in my book 'The Stars Still Shine'.
Now, I don't spend all my time here but it is a place to rest my head, eat and welcome my family and friends. I invite you inside to sit by the fireplace and have a cup of hot tea or hot beverage of your choice.
Lots of love from
Gpaw, Father, Bob"
