Turnpike Exit 10
When buying a home most of us consider residential neighborhoods with traditional homes. Few would consider the idea of converting nonresidential structures into homes but there are those who are more adventurous. The range of unusual structures is broad; from grain silos to old fire towers architects have stretched their imaginations to create truly unique homes.

Very cool and unusual!

Wherever the plane lands
The first picture of the airplane is not a home, it's a Hotel in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica. I've been there. It's really cool. There's an airplane restaurant there too.

There's also a number of cave homes that are pretty cool. Cheap on the heat and air bills too! smile

That looks like a cool place to stay. Was it claustrophobic?

I've seen a couple of features on the storage compartment homes. They are cool.

The ones they've done in old missile silos are neat, too.

Just a short drive from Lake E...
I've been by the boat many times by water and on land. I think that the boat is being used as a bed and breakfast now.

There's a home in a converted water tower not too far from here. Looks like you can rent it on vrbo.

Well of course you could. How different would that be from living in a house in Georgia? Is there indoor plumbing there yet? smirk smile
