Yes the mind can conceive fascinating things and, well, there are people who can turn even the most far fetched idea into reality.Here are 15 unique houses that will blow your mind.
Toilet Shaped House
Sim Jae-Duck, a former mayor of Suwon, South Korea, built his toilet-shaped, two-story home to mark the 2007 inaugural meeting of the World Toilet Association.
Reportedly Duck was actually born in a restroom, which is why he dedicated his life advocating for clean, efficient sanitation for 2 billion people living without toilets worldwide, before he passed away.
The Cookie Jar House
In 1947 John Dobbins’ built this cozy three-story home in New Jersey and it was to be the first in a series of similar houses.
However the others were never built and this one is the only cookie jar house in the US. It has a spiral staircase in the center of the home, and the jar’s lid functions as a widows walk.
The Chair House
From a distance this looks like a tradition house, but closer inspection will reveal that atop the house sits a chair. Some claim that the chair was put there as a joke by the previous owner.
However there is an urban legend that the chair was placed on the 1873 second empire house to calm a spirit that once haunted the New Jersey property.
