That is quite keen indeed.

Now show me the TARDIS floor plan, and I’ll be REALLY impressed.

My Neighbour Totoro!

(geeks out)

Although I am a bit disappointed to not see the big-ass tree that they grew in the backyard that one night.

@Jacob: Many thanks.

(But where’s the swimming pool?) :-)

And exactly one plausible New York apartment. (Breakfast at Tiffany’s, if anyone was wondering.)

A book about this already exists:

TV Sets: Fantasy Blueprints of Classic TV Homes

http://www.amazon.com/TV-Sets-Fantasy-Blueprints-Classic/dp/1579121071/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1362621386&sr=8-1&keywords=tv+sitcoms+house+blueprints

It includes everything from the apartment in “The Honeymooners” to the house in “The Jetsons”.

Yeah, but this is free.

Here’s one along the same lines that goes into absurd levels of detail regarding fictional spaceships: “Spaceship Handbook”

http://www.amazon.com/Spaceship-Handbook-Jack-Hagerty/dp/097076040X/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1362628403&sr=8-1&keywords=spaceship+handbook

It’s rather pricey ($150!), but what really cool about it is that it’s almost entirely about fictional spacecraft from the ’30s to the ’60s, with nary a mention of Star Trek or Star Wars.

Where else will you find a book that devotes a significant percentage of its contents to the spaceships of Tom Corbett Space Cadet, Rocky Jones Space Ranger, and When Worlds Collide?

Cool book…!

Interesting. But obviously some liberties taken. Leonard and Sheldon’s apartment doesn’t bend like that. And I’m not sure why the artist felt it had to.

Sean: Several of these are improbably-shaped (see Golden Girls house), but I suspect it’s because he did what had to be done to account for the sets as shown. With the BBT apartment, on his DeviantArt post he talks about the reasons it must be shaped this way (and also how all of these are amalgams, because every set changes season-to-season and sometimes episode-to-episode).
