Sliding House


Ross and Sally Russell built their home with a sliding cover. With a touch of a button, it becomes a glass home to let sunlight in!
When Ross, now 48, presses a button on a remote-control handset, four electric motors start to whirr, hidden wheels begin to turn and the whole 20-ton shell – 52ft long, 20ft wide and 23ft high – slides slowly back on rails to reveal a mostly glass house beneath – and a first-floor bathroom open to the sky. Ross even built a lot of it himself. How, exactly? “I’ve got an O-level in woodwork,” he says, deadpan.
