The structure is a 2-story, 2 bedroom 2-bath getaway cottage built from 2 upcycled shipping containers. (2-2-2-2!!)

The boxes are stacked, but off-set so it doesn’t totally look like a double-decker box-car.

This modern castle is located in Sedro Woolley, Washington and has been on the market since 2008.

It is one of those very unique properties having trouble finding that “special someone” to buy it.

The price is now down to $895,000 and that is a pretty swell deal because not only do you get a lovely 3,000 square foot castle, but also 20 acres of lush, west coast rain forest including a year-round creek.

A reader contacted me about this amazing church converted into a private home in Wisconsin that is for sale! The owner is interior designer Cynthia Weston so you can bet there is something interesting going on inside.

However, if you are thinking that the decor of this former church has been featured in some haughty design mags, think again.

The interior of this Lake Mills, Wisconsin home is more like a dizzying regurgitation of art, color, and pop culture bric-a-brac from around the world (and across the time-space continuum).
