Futuro House

The Futuro House has sadly burned down! We missed it by one day. 50 years unfortunately destroyed; really sad about this.

Outer Banks Futuro House

The Futuro home looks to be inhabited. As we drove by last night, there were lights on. Didn't stop to talk with anyone.

Futuro House

I have talked to the owner of the UFO House, who has had it since 2000-something. He said he was told by the town to close the door and seal it up. He said no. They are currently letting him use it for storage. The door is always down, so I took a peek inside. It's hot and not real functional. The house is now the mascot of the local art gallery.

Despite the overreaction of these particular town officials, other Futuro houses are successfully inhabited as homes.

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