Creative,Confusing Freestanding House Covered In Grass
Messy is the right word for this Austrian house.You can say that the house goes very well with its green grass surroundings.

[link to awesomenator.com]

Stairways to nowhere on the outside of the house,second story rooms with nothing beneath them & windows that aren't quite all there. The house is a different shape from every direction and covered in bright green AstroTurf. I've never seen anything like it & thought some would find it as interesting as I did :-)

Very unique deisgn, a bit of whimsy to brighten Monday.
Lots of photos at the link.

lmao me too. I think I would love to visit but probably not to live in it, It is so unique that it has to draw a lot of attention.

We had a house covered in astro turf in my town, also a partridge family house, a ship house and some other unusual homes.

Unfortunately Hurricane Ike destroyed most of them. The ship house survived though.

It's strange to see such an impractical house in the same photograph with the practicality of raising goats. One makes sense in the country, the other just doesn't. Rarely can one capture such a dichotomy in one photograph! But I liked looking at the pictures! Thanks for putting them on! :)

Oh, and they should have done something about that orange garbage can (?) before taking these pictures. It really draws the attention away from the house! chuckle

I really love unusual houses,it's a shame that they were lost in the storm, maybe someone will be inspired to rebuild them one day.hf
This one will forever be the Labyrinth house to me because of those stairs to nowhere. lol

I agree, I think that's part of what makes it sooo striking to me,even beyond the actual design.The contrast of absolute whimsy against the absolute normalcy of the surroundings is so unexpected.
I loved the shot with the goats grazing so utterly unimpressed by that fantastical house behind them almost as much as the one that looks like the house is floating midair.
I agree with you on the orange thingy as well, it sticks out.
Glad you enjoyed seeing it ;-)

Probably not, too many new building codes in place now.
Although I don't know why you couldn't astro turf if you wanted too.

I always thought the owner did it because the house was old, probably needed maintenance and painting, so he just covered it with turf someone gave him--saves on maintenance!
