We’ve all seen documentaries on the unique homes around the world, from homes in cold Norway to sunny outback Australia, there are some homes out there that are just uniquely different from the rest. If you’re just looking to build a home and are interested in unique homes, feel free to read on as we dive deeper into the four unique types of homes. 


An oldie, but a goodie. Treehouses are for those with adventurous minds and undeterred spirits. Although generally, they cost less than houses made of brick and mortar, you need to consider the longevity and durability of the treehouse. If well constructed, they can last for decades. However, if they’re made by incapable hands, they could blow off just as soon as they’re built. 


Igloos are constructed from bricks of ice, normally located in colder climates. If you live in areas with outside temperatures of at least minus 30 degrees Celcius, igloos can be literal lifesavers, making inside temperatures fit within the range of minus 7 to 16 degrees Celsius. 


Houses made up of just glass can provide a seamless transition from the outdoors to the home. Although it may look simple, contractors and architects need to make sure the calculations are on point to ensure a strong glasshouse. Not only that, there are several lifestyle considerations you will need to take into account. For instance, there’s no playing baseballs or any kind of sports that have the potential to damage the glass. Heating and cooling are important factors, as the glass material won’t protect you a lot from the weather. 

Upside-Down Houses 

Yep, you’ve read it right. Upside-down houses are just like normal houses, but upside down. The only difference in construction is the size of the rooftops. In traditional houses, the rooftops are located at the top of the house, which allows for their trim-shaped triangles. However, in upside-down houses, the rooftops act as the foundation of the house, which requires them to be shaped wider to support the entire building.
