About the pics..

If you see pictures that belong to you - don't get pissy and complain to google. Just tell me, and I'll either remove them immediately or give you credit and a link - whichever you prefer.

The Nautilus House

Wouldn't it be cool if someone made a house like this?
Well, hey, they did!

A young couple in Mexico grew tired of living in a conventional home, and wanted to move into something more “natural”. They commissioned Senosiain Arquitectos to build them their new home, and the end result was a gigantic Nautilus. The special house was put together using ferrocement construction, a technique involving a frame of steel-reinforced chicken wire with a special two-inch-thick composite of concrete spread over it. The end result a unique structure that’s earthquake-proof and requires no maintenance.

Here's what it looks like on the inside:

I found these pictures sitting in the My Documents folder in my computer. I have no idea how they got there or where they came from. It must have been a too much tequila not enough rational thinking kind of night. If one or more of them belongs to you and you don't want them here - I'll be happy to remove them.
