We love to imagine living in different spaces, don’t we? This is why dollhouses exist, and TV shows about home renovation and moving and interior decorating. To indulge that fascinated part inside each of us, I highlight for you some amazing and creative living spaces.
I want to live in all of them.
I can’t decide whether this house is (a) my dream home, (b) spooky, or (c) offensive (to church-goers?)—but I know for certain that it is awesome, in the truest sense of the word.
Yeah, I’m going to go with “beautiful” after all—though I’m still not sure how to feel about the cemetery.
You can read more about it (and see more excellent photos) in Alkemie’s blog post “We Turned a Church into a Home”.
The Rolling House
The Signal Shed
If you must have a cottage (and many Canadians apparently feel this way), this is the way to go. It’s compact, it’s low-impact, it’s sleek and cozy at the same time. Also: cheap. Well, cheap as far as cottages go. For more photos, see KITKA Design’s blog post about it.
There are hundreds of interesting houses built around, into, and out of trees. You can read the Treehouse Guide if you want to know more about this apparent phenomenon. It’s all very whimsical indeed.
The Recycled 747 House
Some bright, creative woman (who wishes to remain anonymous) recently bought an out-of-commission 747 aircraft and is converting it into a very interesting home. You can read all about it here. It’s quite the interesting (and expensive!) project; apparently there are to be few straight lines and many feminine curves. I think my friend Stephanie said it best: “this anonymous woman is obviously a supervillain constructing her lair”.
Tiny Houses, and That’s That
I’ll leave you with this short, excellent video about Jay Shafer’s tiny houses. As my BFF said, “this guy is like the antidote to hoarders”.
I could go on and on about strange and interesting houses, but I won’t. There are also numerous unusual hotels in the world.
So there you have it. This casa es unusual casa.
