Guitar-Shaped House

With all the growth around the house, it is difficult to tell from the ground that it has any special shape. However, with a drone, it is still pretty cool to see. Park in the church parking lot at the end of that street, and fly at 80 feet (to miss all trees in 2020) over one house to get your view.

The uniquely designed home appears to remain inhabited, and we advise views from the public street. Ask permission from a homeowner before remote piloting overhead.

Guitar-Shaped House

I went to this guitar-shaped house as young teen. It was really nice. It was owned by local talent Dee Ford back in the 1970s. It's pretty cool to know I have been in this house!

Another musician, Elvis L. Carden, claims to have spent 16 years designing and building the house. It was featured on the cover of his 1999 album, "Living in an Old Guitar."

Guitar-Shaped House

In the community of Kenwood in, I believe, Fayetteville, GA, there is a house that is shaped like a guitar. It's right on the road and is brown. You probably wouldn't really notice it just driving by. But if you stop and look, the roof is on a very slight slant, and you can tell. Its a private home, so you can't go into it, but it's still interesting to see from the road.
