    #4 actually ain't too bad.

  • lidalida

    #10 Imma be a light AND water tower. Bitcheeeeees

  • Fart

    #1 Is awesome. Iv'e always loved that house in Sunset Beach, CA. You can rent it out for the summer too.

    • ZJfromUrMom

      Incorrect. This is in Huntington Beach, CA and it is for sale last I checked..

      • Haterade

        either way, you'd be surrounded by douchebags in flat brimmed hats and UFC shirts.

        O.o it is in Sunset Beach next to harbor house… Huntington ends at the traffic light where the bird sanctuary is.

        • eggggggggggy

          sunset beach has been annexed by huntington beach

      • MinorDefect

        Its Sunset Beach, not Huntington.. I rented it for a week about 5 years ago. Its cool but the elevator to get up was sketchy..

      • Robert

        It is actually Sunset Beach. I only know cuz Harbor House restaurant is almost next door in the menu shows Sunset Beach as their address.

        Incorrect. This is in Sunset Beach, CA.

        Sunset Beach, Seal Beach & Surfside are all apart of the city of Huntington Beach.

    #9 would be pretty awesome

    I would have liked to see inside a few more of them…

  • imbrovvn

    I think #10 looks more like a Light house… Still cool to live in one thought.

  • RustyxTrombone

    Cool would like to see more of the inside though.

  • bgleicher

    Michael Kelso is probably foaming at the mouth after this.

  • pdiddily420

    I wonder what the acoustics are like in some of these that incorporated the actual metal container at the top into the design. Probably sounds weird.

  • equalizermax

    Great! Now you have a house that looks like a Penis

  • Ro'

    A home in a water tower never occured to me but it would be brilliant! As well as diabolically secure against burglars if you have a rectractable ladder.

  • the Truth

    water they thinking?

  • Honest Joe

    This is a fantastic idea and a great reuse of unused public property. But if I lived there I don't think I'd be able to keep the Animaniacs theme song out of my head!

    …and we're zany to the max….

    • sugar

      awesome. And I agree.

  • Boomheadshot

    These aren't houses, they are zombie apocalypse shelters. Seriously stock that puppy up and enjoy your days headshotting the undead.

      Exact same thing I thought of

  • g5guy

    All I can think of when I see these places is that it would suck to move all your shit and carry groceries up those stairs

  • Nicnac

    #21 would be a chimney stack…

  • sniggi

    do they have indoor plumbing

  • Lindsey

    I've gotten to my car WAAAY too many times and realized I forgot something in the house to even remotely consider living in something like that.

  • WhatWillBee

    Who needs a ferrari when you can overcompensate with a more obvious phallic symbol.

  • drew

    Kind of gives a new meaning to living in a fishbowl, particularly #'s 3-6.

  • Anonymous

    You forgot one

  • pvsocal

    I totally partied in number 1-2 last 4th of July.

  • murph

    how ironic would it be to live in a water tower with no running water?

  • Abrikosmanden

    #19 and #20 almost made me shed tears! That water tower is in Gentofte, Denmark where I grew up! Did NOT expect to see that on theCHIVE!!!
    I kissed a few girls at parties at that place, when I was in pre school…
