  1. That mushroom house is the most unusual house I’ve ever seen. I can’t see myself living in that one, but several of these are right up my alley. Amazing!

  2. I can’t imagine myself living in a mushroom house or that dome, but the other houses look really nice too! That’s so cool!

  3. Oh my gosh, I love that Mushroom house! That is too cool. You should Google the UFO house in Signal Mountain, TN. That’s a pretty cool and odd house, too!

  4. What interesting architecture! I do not think that I would want to live in any of these houses but some of them are beautiful! Strange to say the least.

  5. That Mushroom house is really weird, but there is someone out there that will get it I have no doubt. Sometimes I wonder what people are thinking when they build, but I give kudos to being creative.

  6. Strange but beautiful houses inside and out. I really like the floating house it so beautiful even though it is floating on water, I find it relaxing and cool place to live. Thank you for sharing.

  7. Revisited this article today to take a better look at all these strange houses. I still love the floating house, but I think my second choice would be the monolithic dome house. I’d plant all kinds of trees around it to keep it in the shade.

  8. I always enjoyed watching shows about odd houses like this on Travel channel. I think it’s so cool that someone had the idea of building houses like this. My boyfriends’ grandfather used to build houses.
