At Lake Tahoe there is a very cool house that is shaped like a Whiskey Barrel laying on its side. I'm trying to find a picture....

There is this wackadoodle place that sits on a lone peak above Denver CO. Its been there since I was a kid and was used in the Woody Allen movie "Sleeper".
Its also made several of the "10 Ugliest Houses" Lists. smile

I *love* the tiny houses. I've also seen a cool tree-house home (best of both worlds, tiny house in a tree!)

I could see living in a tiny house if the climate was nice enough to spend a lot of time outside. Then I'd put my money into buying a big lot. smile

When I was in Philly a few weeks ago, there were some people who had converted highway overpasses into homes. They didn't look real comfortable though....

Overpasses, bad place in a tornado. So if you are going to live in one, you will need to build a basement. JS
