Our house is our shelter and it holds an important place in our lives. It is a place where we are all loved and cared and it protects us from the furies of nature as well. It is not just a building but also a feeling for life. While many of us spend our life’s savings in building the house of our dreams, there are some people finding shelter in the weirdest places possible. 1.

Living in a Water Tower: “The Tower” is an 85 feet tall house and replicates the reconstruction of the Historical Water Tower. The house is a fusion of Architectural Design and a Designer Interior Layout. The tower enables you an explicit view of the Pacific Ocean, Huntington Harbour and San Gabriel River. 5.
