Smith Tower in Washington with a Pyramid House on top

Have you ever heard of Smith Tower in Washington State?  I haven't until a friend showed me a wonderful home that is in the pyramid which is on top of the tower.  The tower is a daunting 35 stories high.  Petra Franklin converted the pyramid on top of the tower into a home. Can you imagine living on top of a building and taking an elevator 35 floors up and down each day?  

I like the large and open living space

But I'm afraid that I would miss having a yard and a place to sit outside. 

Would you ever give up your small or large house that is at street level to live in a high rise?
