WOULD YOU LIVE HERE?

I have lived in some strange places, having had a Southern Baptist minister for a dad who uprooted us every two years, and my ex- spouses being of a very different cultures/races than mine. So I asked myself, would I live in these nutty places? Probably not, so would you be brave enough?

The design of the House on the Stick was inspired by highway billboards . The house is rather small. It is only 27 square meters (290 square feet) and as such it is not intended to be a family residence.

The 21st entry was photoshopped so well that millions of suckers STILL think it's real.

Caro on October 13, 2016:

4th picture you do not know about are condos in a Montreal's suburb: Longueuil. It is call "Habitat 67". It is really expensive to rent one of those. Thank you for your post. I enjoy it.

Karen on April 18, 2015:

Sone of these are photoshopped. The first one that you state you don't know where it is located, is James Bond Island in Thailand. There are actually two versions of a house photoshopped on top of this island. The other has a castle on top and people claim it is Castle Tower in Dublin, Ireland. Both are fake.

c de la merde vos connerie

Marco Piazzalunga from Presezzo, Italy on January 24, 2013:

you've done a very impressive job of collecting images. I'll give you my most enthusiastic congratulations!

isisinanna from Taos,NM on January 15, 2012:

soo cool

Sinea Pies from Northeastern United States on November 13, 2011:

These houses are so much fun...and amazing. There is a mushroom house in the woods in my home town. People used to take their Sunday drives by it, just to get a glimpse.

plinka from Budapest, Hungary on November 06, 2011:

Hi, I love your bizarre houses. I've read about an other hobbit house:

Voted up!

Paul Cronin from Winnipeg on September 02, 2011:

I never saw so many interesting homes, amazing what the human mind can think of. I can't imagine actually living in most of them, like from some other planet. Thanks for sharing! Voted Up and Interesting!

will on April 02, 2011:

Fallingwater is also known as "Falling Apart." Being set right over the water means it is VERY damp and cold, and constantly in need of extremely expensive repairs. No resident has ever really liked living there as a result

H Rosenberg on August 08, 2010:

Does anyone know what the name of the project close to the end is that involves a container house reno.

thnx...the article is great.

G L Strout from Ohio, USA on July 22, 2010:

There is no doubt, the outhouse with the dish antenna is my favorate! If only it had a Cadillac sitting out back! HA! Thanks for a great article!

These are really cool. Some of these (like that one Asian-looking house on the rock) are not real, I think. Something that precarious probably would have fallen into the water long ago.

moncrieff from New York, NY on April 27, 2010:

Absolutely amazing collection!! Thanks so much for putting this together.

SparklingJem on March 15, 2010:

Wow, these range from really cool to really bizarre. I would definitely take the waterfall one, it was incredibly beautiful and the Nautilus House is stunning. 've always wanted a tree house like the one in Swiss Family Robinson.

mel22 from , on February 21, 2010:

This one of the better photo hubs I've seen yet !

kenoscope on January 15, 2010:

You need a photo of The Rock House. It is in, I think, Colorado.

sisters oregon on October 05, 2009:

really great hub.

Neil Sperling from Port Dover Ontario Canada on August 06, 2009:

Reminds me of my Real Estate days....LOL

You missed the bottle house found in British Columbia - made with embalming fluid bottles I believe.

Great Hub

@ Good on July 25, 2009:

cool houses - I like the upside down house or the single log house - I would love to see inside of them!

AsherKade (author) from Texas on July 25, 2009:

nice to see you visited Lee....I knew everyone would like the Fallingwater one...it's not really weird, just neat.

Momma Lee on July 25, 2009:

Nice. Its amazing what people will come up with, with a little creativity, money and spare time. Never live normal if you don't have to!

KRC from Central Texas on July 25, 2009:

Great hub! Yes, Fallingwater is one of my fav's. I have A Frank Lloyd Wright hub in case anyone is interested. I have showcased many of these in various hubs I've done, but you absolutely found some great ones I hadn't seen. Cool architecture just does something to me. :)

AsherKade (author) from Texas on July 25, 2009:

TamCor: yes, you are right.

Man, I just BARELY posted this hub....I feel so loved with all these responses! I should write about architecture from now on....yea, famous crimes the happened in houses...(hhhmmm)

Tammy Cornett from Ohio on July 25, 2009:

Oh, I almost forgot--isn't the FallingWater house one that Frank Lloyd Wright designed??? It really looks familiar.

Tammy Cornett from Ohio on July 25, 2009:

Crazy houses! Tom and I would SO live in that upside-down house, and the one that looks like it was cracked down the middle...but then, we're a little upside-down and cracked ourselves, so they just fit our personalities, hahaha!

Great hub and wonderful pics!

dohn121 from Hudson Valley, New York on July 25, 2009:

Bizarre, yet fascinating. A couple of them looked like they barely escaped the wrath of a tornado! My favorite was the house in Pennsylvania with the waterfall by far. Who wouldn't want to live there?

ralwus on July 25, 2009:

Not interested. Too offbeat for my taste and some are just too small.

jill of alltrades from Philippines on July 25, 2009:

I'd love to visit those houses, but to live in them? I don't think so. I'd be interested to see how those houses look inside though.

Thanks for sharing.

\Brenda Scully on July 25, 2009:

hey hey some of those houses are brilliant..... not sure I would want any of them for a permanent residency, but maybe for a holiday.... thanks for sharing
