The Vipp Prefab Industrial Shelter

Described as everything from a “battery charging station for humans” to a “liveable industrial object,” the Vipp Shelter is a pre-fabricated getaway you can put just about anywhere. Designed and built by the same company responsible for one of the most famous garbage cans of all time, the Vipp Shelter uses a simple steel grid and stilt-like supports to elevate the container-style house above whatever piece of land you want it situated on. Downstairs, you’ll find floor to ceiling sliding windows designed to open up your kitchen, dining and living areas to the great outdoors that surround your fancy new abode. Take a quick trip up the ladder by the daybed area to spend a night in the large bed in the loft sleeping under the stars with the perfect view you’ll have through the glass above. The entire Vipp Shelter has an industrial, almost Russian submarine vibe. It’s a perfect couples getaway if you can stomach the cost.  A snip at only $585,000

A helicopter and matching landing pad. A massage room. A bowling alley. A screening room with 40 Italian leather recliners. Some seriously awesome art. A freaking candy room. A swim up bar. And, honestly, that’s only scratching the surface. The home, which is currently owned by Bruce Makowsky, even comes with a staff that’s been paid for two years of work. Check your damn sofa cushions and get back to us.

Trouble getting a mortgage?

If you’re having trouble getting a mortgage but don’t want to be living with your parents forever then this could be for you.  Why not get yourself one of these cosy little numbers while you save for your deposit.  At only £6500 you could be a homeowner in no time.

You could ask a friend, a local farmer or anybody with a bit of spare land.  Maybe even your parents to use their garden.  Much better if you want to entertain a lady friend than actually living in their house.
