What is this mysterious crucible? Here's our step-by-step guide to the process of pitching a brand new television show.
Casa Los Algarrobos. Perched on the moutains of Puembo, Ecuador, this 8,966-square-foot (833m2) house is yet another dream home to live in and have peace, food, and sex forever. The views, the materials, the distribution—I like it all. But it's that bedroom that took my heart away. I want to wake up there so badly.
I've always liked watching home improvement shows because the idea of rebuilding and renovating and creating with your own hands is so interesting to me. But this time lapse of an apartment being completely remodeled is better than any of those TV shows because it scrunches 120 days of work into one video.
A reader sent us this amazing animated short film he did. It tells the story of a suburban house put up for sale that one day decides to leave everything behind and hit the road to see the world. A quirky story with a heart-melting ending.
This is the House of the Infinite in Cádiz, Spain, designed by architect Alberto Campo Baeza. It looks like the sand actually solidified into the house itself. Simple straight lines, simple use of materials, large windows to watch ocean and make the breeze of the Bahía de Cádiz circulate through its interior. Just…
I want to move to any of these Villae Minimae—small villas—a collection of five isolated single-family houses perched in beautiful, hard to access places created by the Italian studio LAD. Then I want to become a Bond villain.

A home in Brentwood, New Hampshire, exploded today live on TV as an ABC News helicopter was flying over the area, filming as it was burning.
Some people move entire houses with cranes and trucks. Not the Mennonites. They just get 80 men inside a house, lift it off its original foundation, and move it into a new location. That's how Mennonites roll, folks.
What would you like in a house? A roof. Central air is nice. Some insulation probably. Maybe a fireplace if you like that. A yard for the kids with a white picket fence for your dreams. What about a freaking rideable scale train that goes completely around the entire property? Yeah, you know you want that. You want it…
If you're just strolling down the street or driving in your car, you'd never notice anything weird with this house in Raleigh, North Carolina. It looks like a house is supposed to look. You can imagine the family that lives there and the weekday dinners they throw for the neighborhood. You can imagine the kids in the…
Your eyes aren't deceiving you, this house was actually built upside down. The roof is on the floor, the Mini Cooper is parked in the sky and every fixture in the house is flipped around.
