Frisco, North Carolina: Outer Banks Futuro House

A shiny silver flying saucer house -- about as way, way out as you can get and still be on dry land. The portable, prefabricated home was designed in 1968 by Finnish architect Matti Suuronen. Its owner, LeRoy Reynolds, sometimes dresses in a green alien suit to greet visitors.
Hwy. 12, Frisco, NC
Hwy 12 around 52 miles south of the intersection of US 64/264 (Whalebone). Roughly midway between the towns of Buxton and Hatteras in Frisco, on the south side.

Looks to be occupied presently, but needs a little TLC. A receptacle near the front door asks for donations.

The house is on the south (ocean) side of Hwy 12 within the broad area of Frisco. It is in the Allender Construction yard. A nearby merchant said that sometimes a man dresses up as an alien so visitors can have photos taken.

This unique dwelling is tattered and in need of restoration to its former Futuro House glory.

UFO House

Not looking very good at all. The hole in its side is getting bigger. Musty and moldy-smelly inside. Looking pretty ragged.
