I thought it was all getting a little too heavy with all this uncertainty in the air about the future of the property market in the UK. So onto something a little lighter this week. It’s always interesting to see how someone else lives and more importantly what kind of home they live in.
So let’s take a look at some very interesting property. This is by no means an exhaustive list. One of the properties is a hobbit like hole dug into the side of a hill and I being a big fan of Tolkien’s work was keen to see if there were more weird and wonderful living creations out there at the moment for us to feast our eyes on. However not all the wacky and wonderful constructions have actually been built to live in so those aren’t included in my list.
Would you live in a home like this?
This includes knowledge picked up along the way from articles, various friends, colleagues and family members.
Giant Sea Shell House
Very colourful and no doubt designed by someone with a love of the sea. Looks like it might actually be quite cosy inside. I like the front of the building it’s like a mosaic of light and colour.
This one’s a bit austere for my liking. It feels like it should be the house of some villain in some horror or sci-fi film. I’d love to know what it looks like inside.
Boeing Jet house
I reckon this guy was an ex-pilot that felt so comfortable in his aircraft that he needed to actually live in one. As with most airplanes though I expect the toilet to be a little cramped.
Star Trek apartment
Only a true Treky could come up with this marvellous replica of the inside of the spaceship. A real Sci-fi fans dream this I would say. Somewhere to really forget yourself and enjoy the fantasy.
Tree house home
For all those people that still feel like 10 years old. Here it is a fully liveable treehouse situated on a farm I think. You definitely won’t worry about falling out of the bed on this one.
Flintstones inspired House
These themed properties seem to keep popping up. It really does look like a cave. Maybe to bring back some of those cave man/woman instincts once again.
Worlds Thinnest House
Now I’m a fairly tall fella but not too wide. But if you’ve got an extra bit of luggage your trying to lose this may not be the place for you. Also what happens when you invite someone round for a cupper?
Wherever there’s a lot of water,
For all those Bond fans out there and I include myself here. What would it have been to like to live like that Stromberg guy from The Spy Who Loved Me film in his underwater Atlantis. Well here it is!
Now I like to see a good amount of light where I’m living and not have to revert to using artificial lights all the time. But surely there’s a balance between that and a little privacy. Great Concept though.
UK, Holme Valley
Another favourite of mine. Strangely enough only because it’s the home of Hobbits. It looks really cosy to me. Have a look at the video from the link below.
I hope this has been informative, interesting and you liked reading it.
That’s all folks this week but I’ll be back again next week. Please subscribe to my Virtual Demon blog and I look forward to your comments and feedback.
