Where would I live?

Blarney Castle
 Where would I live?  I mean, any place in the world, in any house?

“California ranch-style home” really means small rooms with a narrow hall, small closets, small bathrooms, and small lawn. 

In some closely built homes, neighbors can shake hands through the facing windows.

Where would I like to live?  How about these places:


How about this place in Portugal?




It's all water under a bridge....



I can see clearly now...



Drainage looks good, but on a slippery slope.


Writer's place


Short-term capital gain?


For those stuck between two worlds...

Kinda rustic, but...we'll take it!

There are more of these houses on this amazing crazy site.  The original source site is no longer fuctioning.

Most of these photos are from a friend; I hope I did not step on copy-righting toes in using them.

  1. I've heard of a huse built upon a rock, but in a rock I never fathomed. People with stone houses shouldn't throw glass ... LOL

  2. I love writer's place! Thanks for putting a(nother) smile on my face, this morning, contemplating kitty.

    1. The writer's house would be lovely, unless it rained hard and the water level rose.

  3. I love that picture second from last. It looks like a time capsule got stuck between a rock and hard place.

    1. It does add new meaning of that saying, doesn't it?

  4. Wow these houses are amazing to look at, although some would prob freak me out living in them, fall through the floor on that bridge one or melt away on the iceberg. But I suppose for the bridge one you could have a trap door, someone comes over you don't like, pull the lever and off they go, just hope they can swim..haha

    1. The stone house in Portugal would be interesting, but Blarney Castle would be my choice. Definitely a 'fixer-upper', no bathrooms, etc.

  5. Pat, you killed me with that comment! Golly, I hope I'd always be on your good side. Susan, your captions are too funny.

  6. Wonder why we don't see the happy families posing on the porch. No curtains in the windows, either. Call me a skeptic...

    1. If I stood on the porches of some of those, I would insist on a grappling hook and a rappelling line.

  7. Dear Susan, . . . I so enjoyed these houses that are truly different from the norm. The picture of the domicile hanging between two rocks left me dizzy. What if the occupant stepped out the front door--unwittingly--and onto air? Wow!

    Peace.

    1. If one did that, it would be short regret during a long fall.

  8. I think I would be afraid to live in some of those homes. Blindness says I would probably step right off a cliff and into the sea. haha

    1. The writer's place would be okay, the water's shallow.

  9. Those are some interesting and hilarious houses. The one over the water - I'd be afraid that the house bridge would break.

    1. I thought about that too. It looks old, doesn't it?

  10. Hi Susan,
    Some rather unusual looking places of residence in those photos.
    There's a very strange house in North Vancouver, Canada that starts at a point and then has four points sticking out like a cross from the point in the middle. That probably made no sense what I described. I blame it on being tired. I'm just grateful to have a home.
    Take very good care and happy writing.
    With respect, Gary

    1. That would be an unusual house, wouldn't it. There is a place where 4 states (NM, CO, NV, AZ) meet, called "The four corners". I always thought it would be interesting to build on that spot.

  11. They all look great and interesting, but there is no place like home.

    1. Oh, I know. I just like to imagine where they would put their linens and shower stuff.

  12. Thank you for your comment, it takes around 1hr15 to fly to Oslo from England. It's strangely fast.

    I would definitely live in the Iceberg house!

    1. Can you imagine living in those places?? How to build them?? Boggling, absolutely mind boggling.

  15. Those are definitely some odd abodes. I think I might prefer a big old farmhouse in someplace like Virginia or Tennessee. One that's been nicely remodeled and upgraded for modern living but with all the charm of yesteryear.

    1. Yes, a farm house would be very good...Readers should check out http://acountryfarmhouse.blogspot.com for an awesome place.

      Regardless where I would live, all the modern amenities are an absolute necessity.

  16. Susan, the Ice house looks great but when push comes to shove I would probabaly choose the house with greenary and the water under it, I would love all those natural sounds of the birds and the flowing water....Have a blessed weekend! Amanda
