    In this thread, you can post photos, floor plans, drawings, or descriptions of houses that you find interesting, or that you might want to live in. Here's one, a little on the small side, but nice.

    I don't know where this is or how old, but it reminds me of a take on the brownstones in NYC.

    The house itself isn't so unusual but the setting is.

    Yes, and it seems a little too quasi-conjugal.

    This small home in Houston is covered in an about 50,000 beer cans. Homeowner John Milkovisch began decorating the house with beer cans in 1968 and obviously has never stopped. Over the following 18 years he covered the exterior with flattened can siding, made cascading garlands of can tops to hang off the roof, and decorated the property with pull tabs and other can decor. The man loves beer cans obviously.

    If I’d seen this without any comment I’d thought surely it was a fancy hunting blind.

    We’ll it is. Reminds me of a house built into a hillside in Tulia, Tx.

    The dogtrot house, also known as a breezeway house, or possum-trot, was common in the southeastern US during the 19th and early 20th centuries. It featured a large breezeway through the center to cool occupants in the hot summer. The kitchen and dining area were on one side and the living and sleeping quarters on the other.

    Two story dogtrot - John Looney House, Ashville, Alabama, built in 1818.
