Weird, strange, odd, bizarre, peculiar, unusual... What do these words have in common?
They have all been used to describe TopTenRealEstateDeals.com's newest list: The Top Ten Weird but Wonderful Homes!
So often these adjectives are ascribed with a negative connotation, as human nature tends to ostracize or reject things that are different or unique. Better to blend in with the herd; stay with the pack, be on the safe-side. So it's rare to see homes that differ from the split level, manufactured, vinyl sided cookie cutter homes being mass produced at minimum cost.
Imagine if we all just opened up our imaginations like when we were kids and used our creativity to design something that is truly an expression of ourselves: our home. What a weird, strange, odd, bizzare, peculiar, and unusual world it would be. Interesting how these words take on a whole new meaning when creative becomes the norm. Definitely would make the morning stroll through the neighborhood a bit more exciting.
These homes are the opposite of 'normal' and to us, that is a breath of fresh air. These wonderful homes were designed by artists, renowned architects, inventors and visionaries, and perhaps some of these homes are simply a result of someone with a great sense of humor.
We spent over six months looking all over the United States for these unique homes. And we need to give a big 'Thank You' to all of the media reps and real estate agents/brokers (some of these homes are currently for sale) who helped us with our research and submitted excellent homes for consideration.
And watch for our Weird but Wonderful Homes sequel. We had such a tremendous response that we have already started on a second edition. So if you know of a home that is built out of Slurpee cups and toothpaste or looks like the Statue of Liberty, please submit your home here.
