Watch a wild motorized house rotate wildly around the world

Watch a wild motorized house rotate wildly around the world

Visitors to rural northern Bosnia who see a house whose facade looks different each time they pass aren't imagining anything. The unique structure rotates a full 360 degrees.

Vojin Kusic bought the house in Srbac, near the town of Snbac for his wife, Ljubica, who expressed a desire for varied views without changing rooms. Now she has just that. She can, for example, sit in the same chair and gaze at the front yard or backyard, depending on her mood. It's a room with, and then some.

"The house can make a full circle for 24 hours when it's at the slowest speed, while at its fastest spinning it can complete swoop in 22 seconds," Kusic, 72, told Reuters.

The self-taught inventor designed and built the bright green house with the red roof himself. He mounted it on a concrete base, and electric motors and wheels from an old military transport vehicle spin it around 8.5 feet (7 meters). The front door even rotates. It took him six years to complete the project, progressing little bit day after day.

Kusic, who cites inventor Nikola Tesla as one of his inspirations, has previously built houses. When he and his wife first met, a more traditional abode, the one that stands still, was built.

Ljubica said at the time that his parents wanted their bedrooms to face the sun, but that meant their living room faced away from the street and they couldn't see people approaching the front yard. So he did some major remodeling that involved knocking down walls.

Kusic said he's tired of her complaints and the frequent renovation of our family home, so a rotating house will be built for you so you may spin it as you like.

The new home will without a doubt entice dozens of curious passersby. If looking out at the crowds becomes too much for the family, that's not a problem. All they have to do is spin their house around for a quieter view.
