Strange Houses: Part 2

Strange Houses Part2

In part one (read here) of this two part series on strange houses from around the world. We saw so very unique and unusual houses that people had designed and built. In part 2 we have unearthed houses that are even more unusual and truly unique. Some of them are small and some are huge. Either way we’re confident that you will enjoy the second part of this quirky list.
