The Expanding Home - Mechanical light cottage morphs sliding skin with use/seasons - YouTube

I've dreamed of building a house, with a roof that opens, since I was young. Now, I have expanded my dream, to an expanding Home!:)

When his mother began talking about putting a prefab in her backyard, Caspar Schols- a physicist by training- was working at a tech firm, but had always loved architecture and asked if he could design her something special. Wanting to create a home that you could change as easily as you change your clothes, Schols built the home in a series of shells on a wooden platform. The outer layer is insulated wood panels that slide open to reveal a glass greenhouse pavilion for hanging out or entertaining on colder days. The glass shell can also be rolled back to create an open-air dining, lounging or performance space. With more rolling, one can create other configurations, like the dinner party mode (wood in the middle, glass on the outside to create a covered space to fit a long table and 30 guests). With no architecture training (at the time), Schols spent 8 months building the structure himself (with occasional help from family and friends). He set each shell on 8 small wheels which fit into tracks in a wooden platform. Into the floor he built-in pop-up beds and cabinets to hide outlets and he even had plans for a pop-out bathtub. Though after his mother and guests slept on the pop-up beds a few times they deemed them uncomfortable and he replaced them with furniture from the neighbor (who just happens to be designer Piet Hein Eek).

Baby Bird in Nest in our Flower Pot on the Porch, Mama Bird came to feed

I transferred the videos, from Google Photos, to YouTube. Here's my Playlist...

Baby Bird in Nest in our Flower Pot on the Porch, I think the Texas Heat Killed Him or Her, about 3 days after I found him, after I did some research on what to feed him and if I could even save him at all, I wet back out to check on him, It was already too late, I was so, sad and didn't know just how bad of he was until the, he or she died sometime between 9:30AM and Noon, I would guess, Very Sad

Baby Bird in Nest in our Flower Pot on the Porch, Mama Bird came to feed

Don Bishop Live Stream YouTube Live Broadcast Video, 07-19-18.

A Baby Bird in a Nest in our Flower Pot on the Porch, you can see him at 12:47, I saw the Mama Bird come to feed him or her at 14:00 & 1:24:34, If you see her at other times Post the time in the Comments and it will make a link to it. Do you know what kind of Bird the Momma is? I did some Google Image Searches, but couldn't decide, on the Species Pt2.
Thanks, Don
