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.

7. Lhota Said He Built The House Primarily Because He Got Bored With Building Normal Houses.

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