Do you want the good news or the bad news first? The bad news is that thousands of years of war, death and obsolescence have left a world of abandoned and dilapidated buildings and other structures. The good news is that the enterprising among us can build some wild new homes if we want to.
Thanks to time and constant progress, many of the old buildings now stand empty, waiting to be cleaned up and settled into the distant homes that adults talk about. Guaranteed to blow your mind, abandoned building, this abandoned water tower building has been transformed into a wonderful new home by a creative and resourceful man.
There are dozens of water tower homes across the globe, each with its own personal take on home renovation. But perhaps the coolest of them all, if only for its location and view, is the Sunset Beach water tower in Sunset Beach, California.
The 87-foot-tall tower was built in the 1890s, and it wasn’t until the 1980s that the tower became a home. All four stories of the house take advantage of its circular frame with wraparound windows and even a wraparound porch. Located just a block from the Pacific Ocean and the titular Sunset Beach, its view is stunning.
