Is that where you live?? What a cool house! I remember seeing homes and buildings in that style in Switzerland, but I've never seen them in U.S.
It is not the house I personally live in. I would absolutely want to, concerning the "cozy home living ambience", but not the maintenance going on with such an old house (several hundred years old) - or any house... (don´t get me wrong, I like doing work with my hands, but I just prefer to spend my free time (off work) out in the mountains, and not doing stuff on a house constantly...
It´s just one of the typical old farm houses I pass by at first when going on a shorter mountain trail run.
I personally like to see how it looks like where other forum members live or what they do, so I sometimes "make the background larger and the knife smaller" in my pics...
Can remember for example a pic of your Shaman in some garden (?) with an old shed in the background. I liked that a lot!
And yes, farmhouses in Austria, southern Germany and many parts of Switzerland look a lot the same.
When have you been to Switzerland?
And since you have already been there, why didn´t you cross the border to visit beautiful Austria too??!!
(AND: We have even better knife-laws here than in Switzerland. As far as I know, in both countries you can carry any folder you like, except in Switzerland automatics can´t have a blade longer than 5 cm, in Austria there is no limit even for autos...
He lives in Austria. Yes when I lived in Switzerland there were many Tyrolean style buildings although we just called them chalets
Vail, CO is modeled the same way and only about 90 minutes away from Spyderco
When did you live in Switzerland?
And: I am sure Vail is nice (and I would love to go there for backcountry / powder skiing), but I doubt that their houses are several hundred years old...
