The Dr. Seuss House--A Towering Home in Alaska

(Photo: Jovell Rennie)

It's an oddly-shaped towering structure that looks like the product of a children's book illustrator, not an architect. That's why local residents call it the Dr. Seuss House. They explain that it was built shortly after a forest fire stripped the area of trees. That deforestation gave the owner a wonderful view of the surrounding countryside.

But the trees grew back. So the owner built another storey onto the house. The trees grew higher, so he built another one.

The eventual result was this elaborate tower stretching into the sky. You can see more photos and a video of this wonderful house at Colossal.

Cool! I'd love to get up to the top and take pictures of the landscape there, assuming the place is structurally sound. Colossal says they're doing renovations, so looks like a nice place for a Neato field trip!
