People can live in the weirdest places. What’s the most unusual place you have heard someone lives? I have seen some pretty unusual ones. The other day I saw these people who lived in a transparent house in Japan. Now, this is weird. Why would you want everyone to have access to how you live and what you do is beyond my comprehension! Everyone can catch a glimpse of them at any time of day. This is definitely something I would not do.
Another unusual house is owned by a guy in Poland who lives in the world’s slimmest house. This house makes tree-houses actually look wide. It was designed by Jakub Szczęsny and measures astounding 92 to 152 centimeters wide… or narrow. It has several floors, desk-space to get work done and of course, sleeping quarters. I have no idea what it must be to live there, but I bet it’s a lot of fun and makes for a great conversation-starter.
When Robert notices a run-down gas station that was nearly 100 years old for sale, he knew he had something special. Most people would see the place and not think much about it. They would probably consider it to be a run-down piece of trash.
But Robert saw the place had potential and he would be the right man to bring the beauty out of it. The gas station was a decent size project for him. Roughly 2,000 square-foot and ready to be renovated. He sketches a few ideas of what he would like to do with each area and space.
When people started finding out what Robert had in store, they were very skeptic of what he could do with all that space. Many even thought he was crazy when he told them all the ideas he had planned for the place. The drawings and plans he did, looked kind of nice. This was a very ambitious project. Even for someone who had previous building experience.
In the following video, Robert gives us a tour of his home. He wanted to preserve the atmosphere of what it used to be, Sinclair Gasoline. He scattered several relics all around the home. Robert added a roof deck, installed a hydraulic-lift turned staircase. He even went so far as to install a fully-functioning jacuzzi and a full modern kitchen. Don’t let the exterior fool you, the interior will make your jaw hit the floor. It’s a perfect example of how being creative is just awesome!
