They say home is where the heart is and if that means the place where you are most at peace and where you’re most comfortable, then home is a truly special place. The search for this feeling is a universal one, and with that, the idea of how a home should look like is quite similar around the world. Sure, some people go for bricks over wood and for other small places are favored over large abodes but in general the idea is the same.
For some people however, their idea of a home breaks the rules of tradition and thanks to them, there are some house designs that are rare compared to traditional homes and ones that you have to stop and ask yourself how much fun they must have to live in such a place. From the quirky to the unthinkable, here are six house design ideas that you might have never thought of as a home.
