This quirky collection of pods was built in 1971 for an attorney and an artist, both of whom must have had, ahem, "unconventional" ideas about residential life. For one, their "mushroom house" consists of four, 80-ton pods supported by slender concrete columns, hardly the most confidence-inspiring design. Next, the interior is organic and far from uniform, with sloping walls, oval windows, and tiles designed by one of the original owners. In 2001, the current owner asked the same architect, James Johnson, to design an addition to the house. Apparently the architect's taste hasn't changed much in the intervening 30 years, because it looks pretty damn similar. But the owners' tastes might be changing, as they have the house listed for sale at $1.1M.
