sink or swim house

This house is stunning, i love it! Even considering the fact you have to swim in dirty brown water every day to get home....

Actually it's only flooded but photos were taken like this for extra drama. Nothing like keeping away those pesky door-to-door salesmen.

That is stunning! As long as the river never floods higher than that, it would be a very cool place to live!

This gives NEW meaning to the term "waterfront property"! It's almost too bad it isn't like that all the time... The house looks like it was MEANT to hover over water. Planned or happy accident? Discuss.

I want to live in this house. Surrounded by water, even brown water, would be a treat. Beautiful house!
