That's really cool. I love stuff like this.
When i was a little girl, there was this abandoned building we always passed on the way to my grandma's. My dream was to buy it and fix it up and become an interior designer. I was devastated when they finally tore it down.

are you using a mac with safari? I am and can't navigate the site either. Wondering if that might be the reason?
