Recycling old grain silos into homes has become popular in recent years with shows like HGTV’s You Live In What?!

This 2006 silo house was designed by an architectural firm called Gigaplex.

The home was reportedly commissioned by a single man – which probably accounts for the lack of furniture and the ‘workshop’ feel of the place.

Look at that sleek rubber garage flooring – it makes for the ultimate low-maintenance bachelor pad!

Since there are no square corners to hide things away in this 1,800 square foot home, every ounce of space is thoughtfully utilized. Like the microwave tucked under the stairs.

The coolest feature of this house has to be the “Bed in a Box” bunks, each one complete with stereo sound system and flat screen TV.
