The Everingham Rotating House

The Rotating Home

Well, it’s not everyday we see a rotating house (unless you live near Wingham on Australia), so it was a real shock when I checked the Everingham Rotating House, it really rotates 360º with the help of “central core of plumbing and electricals”, besides that main detail it’s full of good features, for instance:

  • the octagonal shape is able to offer the rooms (and other parts of the house) more space than a normal house
  • it uses plenty of windows and glass doors so you can appreciate the view, it will suck if you live on a place with awful view – the horizons being buildings
  • the rotating system lets you take advantage of the weather, you can be in a room and rotate the house to point that room to the sun direction. Not only is this good to dry clothes faster, but also to take a continuous sun baths

The interface used to make the house rotate is a simple touch-screen panel located in the lounge room, after making the desired settings the system will do the rest and you just need to relax.

In terms of speed and time, using the slower speed it can take 2 hours to make a full 360º rotation and the speed will be something close to 160m per hour; but if you want to go faster there is a top speed which is 40 meters per hour and it only takes 30 minutes for the full rotation.

If you’d like to see a video of the Rotating House, check it out here. There is also a gallery with more photos from the inside and outside of the dream-home.

That has to be the lamest video ever. Hahahaha! Watching paint dry would be more interesting. Nice try, rotating house website! 😀

Do I smell some kind of jealously? 😛
