This D.C.-area House is Basically a Habitable Mushroom

This house in the D.C. suburb of Bethesda, Maryland, is known by several monikers, including "Flinstone House" and "Smurf House," but it most immediately resembles a forest-floor fungus. It was transformed from an everyday, non-Hobbit-like abode into a polyurethane foam-covered fantasy after former owners Edward and Frances Garfinkle bought the home in 1967. The renovation lasted three years. Since then, the Bethesda abode has been featured in a local magazine and the book Weird Maryland by Matt Lake.
