If you’re in the market for a new house but sick of your run of the mill options, you might want to check out Dan Phillips‘ house in Houston, Texas. The two bedroom, one bathroom abode is shaped like a cowboy boot.
Phillips says he was inspired by “The Old Woman Who Lived in A Shoe” nursery rhyme. “I’ve always been fascinated since I was a child to build houses that looked like the houses in story books – to do child-like designs and use a lot of whimsy,” he explains. “A life without whimsy is certainly a non-life.”
The boot is attached to a more conventionally shaped house next door and what’s more, it’s made of mostly reclaimed materials including cork, old picture frames and even old CDs. If you want to spend some time in the boot, it’ll cost you about $1,220 a month.
