Tim "aka" of Timmyland purchased the land in the erly 90's and began construction in 1996. He lived with his family on the premises until 2001. Yes, the picture above is an "octopus" sink.
Somewhat influenced by Edward James' Sculpture Gardens, Las Pozas, in Xilitla in the State of San Luis Potosi and the Gaudi influence, Tim went "off" on his own journey to create this vision of "FUN" and surrealism.
Don't you just love the curves and swirls of this house? There also is a huge building with a door large enough for large scale sculptures to be taken in and out or large canvases - perfect for an artist's studio.
And, last but not least, is the door into one of the houses on the property. (I'm sure you know you can click on the photos to see enlargements so you can see ALL the detailing.)
The house was built out of lightweight concrete applied to a wire mesh screening. It is a product similar to something used in refineries and areas that need a concrete product to protect structural beams from high intensity fires. It takes color well..........
This is just one stop on the "outsider art" tour that I have planned for a group in August.
