It´s not everyday a house in my hometown is featured in the New York Times. I´m from a small town called Drammen. My town is situated about 30 min away from the capital in Norway, Oslo. The minimalistic house is for sale and it´s priced at $ 1.6 million.
I´m not 100% in love with the furniture, but I do love the house!

I never thought I would be writing about something so brilliant! The headliner explains it! When I found the article at home designing I had two read it twice just to make sure that I read it correctly. And to my surprise I did! It´s a sliding house! You heard me right!
It looks like a normal house right? Guess again!
“The Sliding House created, by dRMM Architecture does something that we have never seen or heard any another house do – it slides. Besides the visual awe that the slide creates, it gives the control for its residents to adjust the heating, lighting and mood of the home to suit any weather.”
In the video below the owner of this phenomenal house tries to explain it:

I love architecture, but some times I think the houses can become a bit too extravagant. I found these houses at Leanova Designs. The house in the first picture looks pretty cool, but would you feel comfortable living in a “car”-house.
What do you think? They are really unconventional, crazy and funny to look at, but would you ever live in an unconventional?
Like the title say, readers meet The Selby a 1000 sq. feet Brooklyn, NY home. Am I the only one, who wants to live here?!? I would almost kill for that art piece/sculpture over the fireplace! It´s magnificent..
