Apologies to everybody that thinks I am going to talk about windtubines, no,I came across this windmill and I thought that might amuse some people. And since I like strange buildings and unusual designs....
Not, that I can tell you much about them, but here is a special mill.

Yes, this windmill is in an actual Barn. And it did somehow work.
Its origin is in Podemus about 10km outside of Dresden. Johann Traugott Leberecht Schubert built this unique Mill in 1864.
Until 1914 the mill was being used as it had been originally intended. It was subsequently altered and was being used as a mill until 1957. As it became more and more dilapidated it was being dekonstructed in 1974. The individual parts were kept for later usage in a museum. This took place in 1992/1993 statt. The still existing technique was put into a new building.
and some people really have to much time, (which I admire...) here are some more mills
So, what is your favourite Windmill?
P.S no, I am NOT going to make a series out of this...
