This octagonal house can rotate a full 360 degrees with the touch of a
few buttons. A rotating drive consisting of 32 outrigger wheels and
powered by two 500-watt electric motors is used to spin the house on
demand, a process that can take anywhere from 30 minutes to two hours. Geothermal heating
keeps the house at a steady 71.6 degrees, and the electrical wiring
and plumbing are centralized so that they don’t interfere with the
house’s ability to move. The entire cost of the project was on par with
the cost of a nonrotating house of comparable size.
