18 of the Most Unique, Strange, Unusual Houses Ever Built
7.The Mobile Aquatic Pod, Exbury, England
Designed as a personal experiment by Stephen Turner, the “Exbury Egg” was intended to be an art installation but turned into Stephen’s home on the water. Described as an ultra minimal living solution, the egg is towed by boat to its residence and the wooden exterior is meant to weather over time to blend in with the marshes in which it resides.
There is a one-room living space in the pod and a basic shower, hammock and cooking devices are contained within. A removable dock was built to the egg to allow entrance. The ergonomic egg shape bobs lightly on the tide and is moored by ropes, making it an ideal mobile floating home.
