The Weirdest Homes Ever Built Are So Awesome You’ll Never Go Back To Suburbia Again.
There are plenty of magnificent homes in this world, but there are only a few of them that could be classified as odd, bizarre, or even inexplicable. Across the globe, there are homes that don't really look like homes at all, but rather, the result of some creative architect's fever dream - and we are totally into it.
Below are 30 of the most unusual homes from around the world, and a little bit of the history behind their creation. Check them out and start considering your next home: Could you see yourself setting up shop in #23?
#1. The Snail House in Sofia, Bulgaria.
The construction of this house happened at a snail's pace: It took over 10 years to complete. It's made from concrete that is four times lighter than water, and it is extremely energy efficient.
#2. Futuro Flying Saucer
Designed in 1968 by Finnish architect Matti Suuronen as a ski cabin that would be “quick to heat and easy to construct in rough terrain.” The home now sits in Texas, and is large enough to comfortably house eight people.
#3. The Teapot Dome
Built in 1922 in Zillah, Washington, this home was supposed to be a reminder of the infamous Teapot Dome bribery scandal involving President Warren G. Harding. Despite that, it is a ridiculously adorable little dwelling.
#4. The Boeing 727 Hotel
Though it might look like something out of LOST, this hotel is real and located in Costa Rica. In the past, this plane flew people from South Africa to Columbia, but it was eventually purchased and upcycled into this awesome hotel.
#5. Domes For The World
These 70 dome houses were built by the United States for villagers who lost their homes in a devastating earthquake in Sumberharjo village, near Indonesia's ancient city of Yogyakarta.
