    Should be more than apparent that I have never ventured into Bass Pro Shop. Imagine he probably failed to see a gator within their fish tank, though, not even a baby gator. I only fish with men, and they always supply the necessary gear. The only time I have fished alone is off the dock or large deck above the boat lift in the backyard down in Florida (gator city there), but everything I ever need is at the house or in the water; so, no fishy stores for me.

    After further thought, I think that if I had to place as many and wide variety of hunting trophies as Captain has, I would be inclined to create theme rooms for each type (not if I lived there, and most females probably feel the same... just sayng). Maybe a separate aquatic room and separate land room, or maybe even a separate aquatic salt room and separate freshwater room, or maybe even separate rooms themed upon types of birds. Would really just depend upon how many of each he has, coupled with how many rooms he wished to dedicate to each potential theme.

    That is yet another reason as to why I believe that certain structures, like an historic church or historic home could work to his advantage. Even a tall lighthouse could accomplish that feat. Each room requires a focal point which should be a more prominent mount, such as the extensive gator mount previously described. Any others within the room would not be so elaborate.

    Only now noticed your post:

    4'10"
    Perfectly proportioned
    FORMER model

    I would not expect a male of your advanced age, whom still consistently refers to his father as "Daddy", to comprehend that there has always existed female models other than high fashion cat walkers and porn stars. I was neither, never possessed such a desire, nor ever shall. I did various types of modeling, during my first few years of college. That is it; although, I was pestered by modeling agency talent scouts long after that fact. Such brief experience contributes to my photography skills today, even though I also loathe indoor portrait photography. Outdoor lifestyle shots are another matter, entirely.

    These two links may further assist you, Captain. It is possible that I might have finally resolved your dilemma to a certain degree, after much due diligence. Whether you decide to build or purchase, becoming familiar with some of the various architectural styles could prove beneficial to you. These are some of them, and often you will find elements of more than one within a single design.

    https://99percentinvisible.org/article/style-house-visual-guides-domestic-architectural-designs/

    This large house with large barn within Alabama has sold; however, it's design may be what you require, and specifically one aspect of it. Please disregard all else about it, during consideration of my point. Focus upon the extremely long downstairs grand foyer, as well as the extremely long upstairs hallway. You will see multiple photographs of the downstairs foyer, first, and then only one photograph of the upstairs hallway published after additional photographs, if my memory correctly serves me. They each contain much width and height with limited but brilliant natural light at opposing ends.

    Such is what I was referring to, regarding my former corporate lease within Georgia, and I believe that much of your vast collection could be nicely displayed within each, while some may need to overflow into one large trophy room off to the side, which could then be utilized as a dual purpose room of your own choosing, whether that be an office, parlor, game room, etceter.

    You could build a residence such as this, perhaps upon different scale in order to reduce costs, or you could easily find yet another similar to it, being that this neoclassical design is rather common of historic homes within the South. You could also build a beautiful covered bridge atop a water feature, following the same line directly off the back of the house, placing your trophies within it at some point in time, whenever such becomes mandatory via more hunts.

    In this manner, you would be retaining your other rooms within your new home, strictly for their designed purposes, thereby refraining from frightening off ninety percent of the ladies via dead animals within each and every blooming room. :) ;)

    Current material and labor costs are almost prohibitive. It’s insane. Quality of material has also taken a dump.

    We're about to print another couple of TRILLION DOLLARS ... what can we expect by the end of this administration?

    What's the definition of "Runaway Inflation" ... how does it start? :(

    It has started, and this has the Fed in a major Pickle. Either they face it by raising or let it run away and the people get a Full Monty, energy and food prices are leading the way. Janet Yellen is not who you want at the helm right now. Not being a very religious person, these coming times are where you will being praying that you can pay.

    Absolutely love that old movie, but I have long wondered how those producers managed to obtain that many midgets for it. I have presumed for quite some time now that a simple "Midgets Wanted" advertisement was published within the classified section of numerous newspapers, and that thought continues to amuse me to no end. I do not feel comfortable around midgets, myself, being that it's simply rare coming across those smaller than I happen to be, unless they happen to be children.

    I temporarily worked for a production agency down in Florida, as an administrative assistant long ago, and never once saw composite sheets sent in by any midgets looking for work, nor did I ever notice any on file (may have been some). That production agency was located within a beautiful historic two-story home downtown and beside the river. Fun and interesting job within a regal home of old it was, indeed. Such only further fueled my long-held passion for historic homes, and surely had much influence upon my decision to lease one for my very own corporate headquarters.

    While I find it important to retain some antique lighting, I personally prefer mixing the lighting inside of the huge historic homes with contemporary "jewelry", as I personally consider such to be, while leaving or restoring much of all else to original design. I feel such to be not only necesssary due to advancements in lighting, but also in order to prevent the feeling of being trapped within the past. Lighting is extremely important to me in all aspects, but particularly within a home.

    This particular chandelier would look beautiful affixed to the second floor ceiling of that last neoclassical home, so that it freely dropped through the partially enclosed stairwell and gingerly dangled down beside the turning staircase of old. It would easily afford an extremely delicate offset to the heaviness of all encapsulating its placement, and especially once darkly colored, mounted, hunting trophies were hung along the staircase walls leading up to the second floor grand hall with more to follow them.

    http://www.premiereltg.com/glofib35...027hf6NM8nZeadT-pWWRcZUgYFVpgi7BoCojwQAvD_BwE

    Due to the immense amount of mounts in which the captain must place, I believe that a completely open stairwell is mandatory, as opposed to the partially enclosed one pictured within my previous post, even though such would serve to decrease wall space of the second floor's grand hall. I believe that some of his heavier and most prized trophy mounts should be displayed within that open stairwell, such as his most preferred bucks.

    I simply do not like the idea of his most prized possessions being crammed and hidden away within one room, such as a renovated garage, believing that doing so would only serve a great injustice upon him, as well as the animals in which he has taken over time His new residence should clearly make the statement that he is a hunter, and from the very moment anyone passes through the entranceway, without all overburdening every room. Meanwhile, I believe that his office/library should clearly express that he is also a fisherman and seafaring captain, complete with a deep fireplace, large desk and bookshelves of old, free-standing world globe, wall map, along with a select few of his most prized deep-sea catches mounted to its walls.

    The more that I have fun thinking about it, the more that I want to handle the interior design for him. It is most certainly a challenging one, which is why it retains my interest. I happen to have always loved tangram puzzles. :cool:

    I think it wise of him to have bid what he thought upon one house, only to have been outbid by yet another. He simply needs to stay the course with much patience, even though I realize that he is overly ready to pounce upon something; which is more than understandable, after his having been at sea for most of his entire life. Determining whether it is a buyer or seller's market within those specific locales holding most interest to him is the key, if he decides to purchase, as opposed to that of building. He will know without any doubts, whenever the correct opportunity presents itself to him, I believe (maybe not with women, but the acquisition of a permanemt residence, indeed). :)

    You surely have me mistaken for one of countless models; none of my modeling photographs reside upon the information highway, via my own design.

    Captain, you may potentially find this recent article to be useful. I discovered that it pertains to one of my thoughts within the previous post. It is well written by one with purported background.


    https://www.rocketmortgage.com/learn/buyers-market-vs-sellers-market


    I also believe it to be likely that this may further assist you, since you somehow thought it possible to place 100 mounts within a room the size of a two-car garage, in some type of appealing fashion. It should serve to further sharpen your spatial cognition. Moreover, you may possibly discover it to be a beneficial manner of winding down, when time permits itself each day.

    Perhaps your "Daddy" thought such and told him so. :p


    For the record, this is most certainly not what I intended, regarding placing select bucks within or around a stairwell. No Sir-E ! :eek:

    How frequently do most cleanse their trophy mounts? Being rather particular about cleanliness, myself, as well as desiring to place a good portion of the captain's trophy mounts within a rather dangerous place to regularly access, I thought it wise to learn something about taxidermy. Moreover, I would not desire placing the mounts somewhere in which they would not be properly cared for, while the captain happens to be away at sea.

    So, I just issued query and read the following, desiring to know if such were average. Personally, I can not stand the idea of letting anything sit untouched for over 30 days and 90 days maximum, when located in difficult to reach locations, while I would prefer once a week. This man says once a year. That simply cannot be correct. I am now wondering whether they can be harmed, via over cleansing them.
