Two things: The blades are way too close to the ground. As they turn, they are going to hit the ground or that staircase. Even if they don’t hit the ground, it makes more sense to put the windmill higher above the ground so it gets more wind.

It would also make more sense to put the door on the back of the windmill, instead of in the path of the blades…

It looks like the windmill blades are going to his the stairs.

the rotors (amrs) would hit the stairs when they spin!~

4. lograh | Profile

er… if those blades got spinning fast enough, it’d be pretty tough to walk up those stairs, wouldn’t it?

5. Margot | Profile

The arms of the windmill are too long. They can’t spin past the railings of the staircase.

You couldn’t enter the building on a windy day without being chopped into bits!! The stairs themselves also look to be in the line of fire.

I’m not sure, but I’ll wager a guess.

Shouldn’t the stairs be on the opposite side of the structure to avoid getting whacked by the blades? Unless dodgeblade alleviates the boredom, that is…..

I have two ideas

1) The shadow of the windmill does not match with the shadow of the bottom-left fan

OR

2) The shadow of the bottom-left fan is the wrong shape, and (maybe) the shadow should be longer.

Either way, it’s the shadows that are wrong

When the windmill turns, it will hit the staircase.

10. Falwan | Profile

building too low…

11. Falwan | Profile

Also entrance should be away from blades.

12. HammyCat | Profile

ahhh… Sorry… Its bottom RIGHT fan for both solutions, not bottom left

13. doar823 | Profile

it looks like the blades will hit the stairs

14. Someone | Profile

The propellers would hit the stairs
The shadow in the doorway should be on the right

15. barftud | Profile

The sails are gonna have some difficulty turning with those stairs in the way…

16. katiem | Profile

It looks as if the sails of the windmill will knock out the steps or gouge a trough in the grass the first time the wind blows

17. HammyCat | Profile

last guess… the cog the blades rotate around is not supposed to be on a corner- it’s supposed to be in the center

mistakes:

1. We should pray that the wind mill never starts working, otherwise the blades will cut the stairs leading to the house! or break themselves!
2. when the wind is blowing, you will not be able to enter or leave the house without risking your life!

other minor errors:
3. For the structure of the house to be able to support the windmill, the windmill should be attached to one of the walls of the house, and not at point where two walls meet.
4. have you ever seen a windmill located on a small mount? it is important for the windmill to be at a height.. on mountains.. but i have never seen one on a tiny mound as this!

should the blades of the windmill go round, they would eventually sweep away the front access

20. Mashplum | PUZZLE MASTER | Profile

Blades will hit railing (and possibly the ground too).

21. sebbie3000 | Profile

The sails wouldn’t be able to get past the wooden steps – they are too close to the main body of the building, and are too long.

22. abeshua | Profile

the windmill is to big. it can chop off the stairs or ppl trying to get in

23. RK | Founder | Profile

Lots of correct answers as above. HammyCat, Gayatri, and Fina also make some good observations

have a nice really old French Hidden Object card that will go up before the day is over, as well as a math brain teaser

The blades of the windmill is too long

25. unclemark | Profile

The slats in the blades need to be rotated slightly. If they are perpendicular to the length of the blade they will not create any rotational force on the blade.
