Micro-Castle for Sale in Sweden (and “THE ODD POD” micro-housing design)

Jon Kalish, NPR host-extraordinare, sent me this, which he found on http://www.Neatorama.com

Apprarently, its actually a lookout tower, but constructed with a castle aesthetic- that sits on 1000 square meters of land. Unfortunately the realtor’s photo stinks (they usually do)- but you get the general idea. VERY cool….

There’s a similar tower in Marshfield, MA- an old submarine lookout tower form the war- MUCH taller, that you can rent out. I’ll try to locate some pics…    

ALSO- Shelton Davis of http://www.repurposedgoods.com a site/organization with a great concept and I are hard at work on pdf plans for a brand new micro-architecture piece/afforadable cabin I designed that I’ve dubbed “The Odd Pod”- A sketch of it will be in my upcoming book through The Lyons Press, as well as some of Shelton’s design/layout work- which looks INCREDIBLE! Check out his site- he’s got some great ideas.

Here’s 0ne of Shelton’ s pallet-wood chairs, recently auctioned off for charity…

I LOVE the tiny castle. I always wanted to live in a castle but the whole wanting a small house seemed to get in the way of a tower. Apparently not. Now, all I have to do is move to Sweden. Or build my own.

The property for the castle says it is 1000 “square meters”, (not sq. ft. ).

I am curious how much they were asking for it ?, i tried looking it up, but i couldn’t find any more about it. It definately looks pretty cool though.
