Imagine Living In A Rotating House?

A couple in Canberra are doing just that. Their four bedroom two bathroom home can do a complete rotation in only 10 minutes to capture the best of the sunlight, wind or connections with the outdoor spaces. What a talking piece! Not only that but very surprisingly it only uses minimal energy to turn this 56-tonne house – just the same amount of energy to run a light globe. In addition to this cool feature, the house is 6 star energy rated with 24 solar panels and a 120,000L water tank reducing their bills and reliance on the grid to almost nil.

It’s exciting to see innovative players within the industry and clients who are willing to give them a go. Think of the possibilities with technology like this! We would love to be involved in a project like this – would you give it a go? Have a look here for more information:
