Mi Casa, Mi Concrete Casa!

“Every Home is A Castle”, or at least one would hope that one would feel that way about where you park your body, mind and soul each day.

Happy at home by the Fireplace

A sense of happiness and security is a wonderful balance to achieve in your own home.

It’s also lots of fun to take a look into other people’s ‘castles’ – especially when they build and live in a modern day version of them. We’ve come across a couple of fascinating concrete versions of this style of domain to share with you.

What about you? Do you feel your home is your castle? What makes you feel this way?
