Steel House. Steel House

So cool. Great piece of architecture. Both houses are worth the detour.

Mosaic House. Steel House and Mosaic House - Neighbors!

Across the street from Steel House is a curvy Mosaic House with a stone and mosaic exterior, reminiscent of Antonio Gaudi's work. Equally eye-catching!

Robert Bruno's steel house. Steel House

Another for your series of obsessive architectural pursuits: for 20+ years Robert Bruno has been single handedly working on "Steel House."

[Carlos, 07/05/2004]

You can see more on artist Robert Bruno's process of building a steel house at www.robertbruno.com. Robert sez it okay for travelers to stop and take their own photos of his steel home's exterior. "Up until a few weeks ago, people just wandered in, but now I've moved some things in and occasionally spend the night. If I'm raiding the refrigerator I don't like turning around to find five people standing behind me. So, unless specifically invited, they need to stay on the outside of the front door."
