With YepYep’s original HQ being in Cincinnati, someone sent us the Mushroom House and asked if we’d ever been.  The answer is no, but it inspired us to explore similarly bizarre homes from around the world.  Below are the 10 strangest we could find.

The American Shoe House was built for Pennsylvania’s self-proclaimed “Shoe Wizard” in the 1940’s to serve as the ultimate advertisement.  The South African Shoe House clearly is more modern, being built in 1990 and fitting for Grandmama.

The Bubble House still isn’t finished, but it still is a tourist attraction due to its alien-esque design and beautiful view of the Mediterranean.

Instead of demolishing a couple of old studio buildings, 2 artists decided to make them into an apparent vortex funnel.  This is definitely the house you walk by with your little brother and tell him a story about aliens.
