Futuro - Mating Flying Saucer House

We visited the UFO House in mid-August, and had a nice conversation with the resident/owner. He said he'd just finished painting it that morning and looked forward to turning the chore over to his son one day.

We mentioned our concern about the "no parking" and "no trespassing" signs, but he told us not to worry. That's for the weekend crowd, he said. "I get every drunk in the county come out here on a Saturday night."

I lived two doors down from this cool house in the 1990s. It was put together by the sons of the farmer in the house on the right side, and has been there for more than 30 years. People have lived there since it was built. The story goes that the tunnel on the right side goes into a structure underground. Who knows?

The Futuro Twin Houses are worth the drive if you're in the Dayton area.

Very interesting -- unsure if it's someone's house or just a building.
