Floating house in Portland

Robert Harvey Oshatz, Architect - Fennell Residence, Portland, Oregon. The imaginative use of curved glue lam beams of the floating house evoke the poetry of the ripples and contours of a river. One accesses the deck via an expansive sliding glass door. A master bedroom sits over a study and looks out over the living dining area and out to the river beyond.
Unique wooden house design by Robert, indeed.

Now this is traveling in style!! "If a Moroccan tent and a trailer had a baby, and that baby went to charm school, it might look just like the Opera. The Opera is manufactured by the Netherlands-based Your Suite in Nature (YSIN) and was designed after the Sydney Opera House. The trailer travels around as a nondescript pop-up, but then transforms like a swan into an elegant and luxurious camping space."

Aug 2012: Hameau de la Reine (the Queen's Hamlet) is a rustic retreat in the park of the Château de Versailles built for Marie Antoinette in 1783 near the Petit Trianon.
This is one of the twelve cottages that Marie Antoinette had built to form her hamlet outside of the Versailles Palace. The whole place is amazing!

And...I'm home. The Schwimmhaus by German architects Confused-Direction is a green hausboot (oops, house boat) designed to float around or just stay put on the shore. Its modern pre-fab aesthetic sets it aside from most maritime-y houseboats, and a green roof adds freshness and sustainable cred. Still under construction, Schwimmhaus is being built from wood salvaged from an old farm house in addition to other sustainable building materials.

A house that plays music when it rains Dresden #Germany, Neustadt Kunsthofpassage #Europe #creativity #architecture
I should go visit this place since it's sorta near by! This building is located in Dresden, Germany. It’s called Neustadt Kunsth of passage. And when it rains it starts to play music.
A Wall That Plays Music When It Rains When it rains, this unique colorful wall in Germany becomes a charming musical instrument. Referred to as Neustadt Kunsthofpassage( an artsy neighborhood in Dresden, Germany), when water runs through the drain pipes and gutter system that are attached to the outside of the building, they become an awakened orchestra.

"Arthur Millican Jr., a former Disney artisan, typically works at a much smaller scale building tiny houses for fairies and gnomes, but this super sized fairy house has been scaled up and is ready for play! Arthur of "Whimsical Fairy Garden" designed and built this amazing playhouse from found materials. He collects old objects and lumber that can latter be incorporated into his designs." The out of kilter planes remind me of that the Cabinet of Dr. Caligari!

Tiny Living I am a big fan of fort-like living. I spent a good deal of my time as a kid setting up the perfect house/fort/under-table studio for my dolls/Barbies/New Kids on the Block action figures... but when all of their bits were organized and the interior decor was set up, i didnt fancy playing any more... a gleeful store-er at age 4. This micro home (made from scavenged wood) is very cute. Check out the full slide show via the link below.
This fellow has a video somewhere of his work but I found nice pics of it here.

I doubt many of you order more concrete drain pipe than you need, but if you do here’s a great way to reuse them into a workspace or guestroom
This is neat, but I think I'd get too claustrophobic. I also don't like the idea of an Austrian putting me into a pipe. ;) //// Das Park Hotel in Ottensheim, Austria has made hotel rooms out of retired concrete drainage pipes. After receiving a coat of varnish, a skylight, and a colorful paint job on the back wall, these pipes are ready for occupants.
Guest houses These piped room may not be amazingly beautiful but they serve their purpose and are a cool idea
Interesting idea based on wabi sabi. http://www.homeinteriorszone.com/interior-decoration/decorating-tips-ideas/what-is-the-concept-of-wabi-sabi-and-how-can-you-use-it-in-your-home/

Cordwood buildings are actually made from wood stacked firewood-style, and mortar. Debarked logs ranging from 12 to 36 inches can be arranged into walls either in load-bearing round structures or in combination with post-and-beam framing. Soft woods like cedar and pine are used because they are more stable, with less expansion and contraction. These walls offer both insulation and thermal mass.
Called cobwood wood henge building process.

700 year old Iranian Home Allegedly, these homes in Iran, carved out of solid rock, were built on the order of 700 years ago and are still inhabited by people who have given them modern touches (you know, the little things like windows, doors, and electricity).
