This Guy Made What Might Be The Coolest House On Earth

A 73-year-old man in the Czech Republic built this rising, rotating, subterranean home by hand. It’s sort of a Robo-Hobbit house, located about 62 miles north-east or Prague. And it has a swimming pool.

8. The Other Motivator Was Energy Efficiency. When The Home Is Completely Undergroud, It Maintains A Stable Temperature Year-Round.
