Home Ownership and Weird Houses

I read Not Everyone Should Own a House

Its an article on USA Today, with links to weird wonderful houses .

These houses caught my attention. Houses built of soil, a $55,000 house with 200 square feet built of recyclables, castles, a house inside a sand dune near the beach, a connection of various Domes in Colorado. Some , the buried domes, are apocalypse-ready with solar and wind energy.

An architect in Minnesota, Winslow Wedin, constructed a house in 1969 from polyurethane spray foam, chicken wire and 2 x 2s. It was cheap, solid, and incredibly energy efficient. has the entire grouping on one webpage.

Brings to mind the adage, if you can dream it, you can do it.

Or my new mantra, Freedom is just another word for nothing left to prove.

Just going through the photos and reading the history is inspiring.
