    i like the house alot, but not the tiles used on the outside of the house…
    but then again the design is really awesome (:

    stairs as a rooftop. Giving peeping toms and home-invaders all sorts of new possibilities.

    I’ve always wondered what it would be like to live under the bleachers.

    why not build a slip n’ slide for those playful kids?… just don’t slide off the roof.

    @ Paul, if you read it says “Open spaces between the stairs are covered with clear glass that lets in light and protects the house from rain.”

    i think its a really cool idea, but i dont think the veiw will be very nice if someone decides to sit on the steps..:S -_-
