Ferris Wheel Housing Blocks

Your house on the wheel goes round and round...

A row of gigantic ferris wheels, each wheel with forty- odd gondolas; each gondola a self-contained home.

Whenever your home is at the bottom the waste trap empties into a sump and goods you have purchased / mail / packages are switched into a small "lift room" from which you can extract them while the wheel is moving or not at the disembarking points (five or so platforms at the bottom of the wheel's travel).

At night the wheel continues to spin slowly, exposing wonderful views through large windows and gently, imperceptibly rocking you to sleep.

       I read that as Fenrir wheel. Well it'd be one way to keep the wolf from your door.

       They could be built in a number of Loci, so to speak.

       //They could be built in a number of Loci, so to speak.   

       Would that be somewhere near (V)anaheim(r)?

       By its untyred right hand.

       It is remarkably difficult to think of any way to just slip Yggdrasil into a conversation, but I'm working on it.   

       Alternatively, I suppose you have the all the nuts and bolts secured by Loki-tite?

       Not recommended for sleep walkers, who could wake up very thor.

       [+] I thought it was gonna be giant storage sheds for ferris (Ferris?) wheels during the off-season. But this is better.

       This would also be good for offices in a big city.

       It would, [Ling]. If you were a halfbaker you could Frigg around all day, staring out the windows, trying to come up with ideas using just a rag 'n' a rock.

       then do chips in your Freya...

       Hell, fulla snotra.
UnaBubba, Jun 07 2012
  

       Don't you mean frank snotra?
AusCan531, Jun 07 2012
  

       It was a reference to three of the Norse gods/goddesses... Hel, Fulla & Snotra.
