Al johnstone, who calls himself a “hobbyist,” suggested a round home to his wife before construction started. And when the discussion of views came up, Johnstone proposed building a house that rotated.
They went on and built it themselves.
Johnstone took CNNMoney on a tour of the home, showcasing the mechanisms that turn the home 360 degrees in just 33 minutes.
The home rotates on a 1.5 horsepower motor with 16-inch wheels on a steel track, and can spin in either direction.
The house resembles a cross between a flying saucer and a hockey puck. But it truly is one-of-a-kind.
