Add this spectacular house to your list of dream homes

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. » 12/24/14 7:47am Yesterday 7:47am

120 days of apartment renovation in a single time-lapse video

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. » 12/15/14 11:39pm 12/15/14 11:39pm

This house has a freaking train you can ride all around the property

This upside down house is actually right side up

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. But when the house is upside down it's actually right side up, if that makes any sense, because the interior is flipped too. » 1/16/14 10:30pm 1/16/14 10:30pm
