We’ve seen wonderful lists of the most creative, bizarre and quirky houses and they’re truly a marvel to see, but today it’s all about location, location, location! We put on our hiking boots, pack our backpacks and go traveling to some of the strangest places on earth where people have built their homes.

13 - Home grown…
Before we knew too much about turning our homes into eco-friendlier versions of their selves, Icelanders were already far ahead of the game. They use the earth’s natural dirt to insulate their homes, which means once the grass starts growing, you’re blending in with the landscape beautifully. Also bear in mind that building materials are not easy to come by in more remote areas, so this is the perfect solution. By owning one of these homes, you’ll blend right in.
12 - Ready for Take Off…
This Boeing 727 Hotel in Costa Rica is located deep in the heart of the jungle. So not only are you heading into the seriously awesome location of a jungle, but you can also brag that you’ve overnighted in a disused airplane flew from South Africa to Columbia once upon a time. Many amazing conversions have taken place in old aircraft, from restaurants, to homes, hotels and even a kindergarten.
11 - Rock On…
Over in Utah you’ll find homes that have been blasted into a rock wall that form part of the Rockland Ranch Community. Around 100 people live there, and the area was founded 35-years ago.
10 - Cliff Hanger…
Although Xuan Kong Si is actually a Monastery, I’ve added it to our list today – because technically, it is home to the monks that reside there. This particular mountain is considered sacred, and the Monastery in Mid Air – which is what Xuan Kong Si translated means – has been hanging there since 491 AD. To this day, architects are in awe of how they managed to get these dwellings to hang like this off the side of the cliff. They do know how it was done, but it’s remarkable they were able to do so. They were built high up as either a defence mechanism against marauders, or to protect themselves from floods.
9 - Home is where the heart is…
This big house is located on Elliðaey Island, Vestmannaeyjar Archipelago in Iceland. An incredible view from above, but you’ll never be allowed to visit there. It was built in the 1700’s and at that time 5 families lived on the island. The house is now owned by a hunting club and you have to be a member to get there. They don’t have electricity but fortunately they do have a sauna.
8 - Oh, the places you’ll go…
Over in Northern England these treehouses served as a form of protest. The residents of the treehouses built them to prevent authorities from quarrying for gritstone in the historic Nine Ladies Sit in Stanton Lees.
7 - Time to go home…
This is the Brooklyn Clock Tower Home and it’s got a hefty price tag attached to it. It costs $15 million and offers the lucky owners a view of Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens. It’s 6,813-square-foot and at one stage was bring rented out for $50,000 a month!
6 - Welcome Home…
Built in the 1700’s, let’s take a walk around Yemen’s Dar al-Hajar palace. The more modern part on top of the hill was built in the 1930’s by Yahya Muhammad Hamiddin, an Islamic Spiritual leader. The rooms of the palace are built into the side of a tall rock spire and you can buy a ticket and walk through this 5-story rock palace.
5 - The house of the rising sun…
Although it’s uninhabited, this is just worth a share because it’s so bizarre. It’s known as the Floating Castle near Krasnosilka in Ukraine, and is actually an abandoned granary.
4 - Home is where you lay your hat…
We head to Tunisia and pop in for tea at Matmâta. Thought to date back to the Roman times, inhabitants have dug these monstrous pits into the ground and tunnelled into the sides to create their living space. Nobody really knew about this place until the mid-60’s and that was thanks to the Star Wars film, A New Hope, where Luke Skywalker made his home on the planet Tatooine. Why they are built like this is not certain, but it could possibly have been to hide from the Egyptians or some like to believe that desert monsters used to live in those underground tunnels.
3 - Head for the hills…
Admittedly, it’s not a house but a hotel, but the location is most certainly surreal! The Solvay hut is located at 13,000 feet on the Matterhorn in Zermatt, Switzerland. It offers a resting place for weary hikers!
2 - House on a hill…
In this case, it would be more of a case of house in a hill. This was the creation of SeARCH and Christian Muller Architects, and the entire home is built into a hill. The shape allows for lots of natural light to filter into the home, exquisite panoramic views and loads of shelter.
1:26 How can you have a segment about this famous house and not state its name? It's called Fallingwater. What you don't say is that the owner asked for a house with views of the waterfall, but Wright, going against those instructions, built it *over* that waterfall. Unsurprisingly, damp was a problem and the owners always had to have buckets about the place to catch the... falling water.
I’m just putting it out there I live near the thousand Islands region and there are no tides that effect that region of the st-Lauren river. It does however get affected by the weather higher water in the spring , lower water in the summer.
Just .afacewhomakemoneyoff being there
These are really unusual homes. Love the grass roofed ones and the one you have to be a member to get to. Love the terrain on the member one. Personally I would choose to live in NH on Lake Wiinne or Squam Lake. They build houses on islands there and the water level doesn’t change so they can build and have built right on the water’s edge. They drive across the lake when frozen and boat when thawed. GORGEOUS!!!!!
The tribes did not build their house's there well actually they were nightime home's. They were not escaping from preditors of other tribes they slept up there because of warnings of monsters on the forest floor at night that have been passed down from their elders.🎁🎉🎉🎉.Now you know the real reason. Did you know mostly what they eat are forest animals! They also ate white, fat slimy worms called grubs which is a big part of their diet.👊👍👍👍👍👍👍👍
I heard that the tree house dwellers only did it for the BBC firstly and still pretend for other people like the maker of this video... they only built them as a joke and the BBC went and made a documentary about it so the natives played along!
They put a commercial early in this article, to get you to watch a clown degrading brett kavanaugh as a possible liar. NO evidence, proof, just speculation, defamation of character, and they wonder why they are know as Faux News. (FAKE= LYING Constantly= Also see; HITLARRY.) Even after the woman who accuses him told the news four people's names who were there and ALL of them say SHE'S LYING. From a party 35 years ago. Probably just another METOO# check in the mail for her soon.

Learn to pronounce the names of places correctly, such as "Coober Pedy", and for pete's sake, give its location (Australia). I cannot believe someone allowed the narrator to say, "you overnighted in a disused airplane FLEW from South Africa, once upon a time." Illiterate twerps. It should be FLOWN. Quite a few of these are not "homes" at all, as you admit. Clickbait.
The house on the island in the St. Lawrence river is the one I'd choose, I saw it when I was in NY state back in 2000. The house has a magnificent 360 degree view around it and is accessible via boat only. Very nice!
No. 22 - surreal waterfall designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1935, he must have travelled 2 China & come across from from of high mountain top places where 1 of ancient history, a certain formidable expert in martial arts Taoist monk protected that brought up 2 males, 1 was the only heir of rival dynasty while the other came from a comet-star. Even viewers watched these drama series video w/ English subtitle, took a camera & photograph this wonderful fairy-like waterfalls flowing from the sides & below the building w/c is more attractive from the designs of Frank Lloyd Wright. He must have given an idea; so, imitate some of it. No. 10 - Zhuang Kong Monastery looks like what was shown by Hollywood movie, entitled "Cliff Hanger." These was different place compared to No. 22; besides, Chinese drama series movies was produced in this place w/ English subtitle plus all viewers have seen what's inside each & every designs of each room, what cups/saucers, their hourly time prayers, working hours, when tourist can enter on what month preferable. They respects their older Masters & has time practicing martial arts after being taught. As these monks believe their religion, they were built 431 AD by these monks together w/ hired experienced carpenters. Some of them were confirmed reality through dreams w/c you think weird. Thanks 4 your researched; so many people whose not traveled thought they're part of your expedition plus thanks again 4 an addition of English subtitle.
