Wayne Manor & The Batcave: Official DC Blueprints

It's hard to think of a more popular piece of pop culture real estate than Wayne Manor, especially with its extra square footage in a structurally sound cave below. When it comes to the digs of Batman, it's hard to combine it's impressive monetary value and cultural importance in one spot of land.
For most of its history, Wayne Manor has been left undefined in its actual architectural design, leaving fans to fill out the blanks rather than have them defined. One notable exception is in 1986, when DC Comics licensed out Batman to Mayfair Games as part of the DC Heroes Role Playing Game. Mayfair released the Batman Sourcebook, which included blueprints and floorplans of both Wayne Manor and the Wayne Foundation Building, which included his penthouse apartment. Each had its own private underground Batcave lair. To check out these blueprints over the web:

The dimensions are pretty impressive: 125 X 225 feet, for a square footage of 28,125. It's also a three story home, with a nice basement (and an even nicer basement beneath it.)

For those who want to read the entire Batman Sourcebook, which is chock full of interesting information on Bruce Wayne and the entire cast of Batman characters:

Meanwhile, to check out a non-authorized version of Wayne Manor, look at the blueprints made by Mark Bennett for his book TV Sets: Fantasy Blueprints of Classic TV Homes.

And here's some places to check out to see real life addresses for Wayne Manor:

Batman TV series
380 South San Rafael Avenue
Pasadena, California

In the series, the Batcave entrance is found at the Bronson Cave in L.A.'s Griffith Park:

Tim Burton's Batman

Exterior: Knebworth House
Hertfordshire, England

Interior: Hatfield House
Hertfordshire, England

Joel Schumacher's Batman
Webb Institute
Glen Cove, New York

Batman Begins
Mentmore Towers
Buckinghamshire, England

The Dark Knight Rises (2012)
Wollaton Hall
Nottingham, England

Hey! I know this is somewhat off-topic however I had to ask.
Does building a well-established website like yours take a
large amount of work? I am brand new to running a blog but I
do write in my journal on a daily basis. I'd like to start a blog so I will be able to share my own experience and thoughts online. Please let me know if you have any kind of ideas or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners. Thankyou!

I'm new to building web sites and I was wanting to know if having your blog title relevant to your articles and other content really that critical? I notice your title, "Blogger: The Konformist Blog " does seem to be spot on with what your website is about but yet, I prefer to keep my title less content descriptive and based more around site branding. Would you think this is a good idea or bad idea? Any help would be greatly valued.

My coder is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.
I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using Movable-type on various websites for about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform.

Amazing blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers?
I'm planning to start my own site soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
Would you recommend starting with a free platform like Wordpress or
go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there
that I'm totally overwhelmed .. Any ideas? Thank you!
