Shell of a Futuro flying saucer home. Stick your head through one of the portholes and imagine what it must be like to live inside it. The portable, prefabricated home design from 1968 is by Finnish architect Matti Suuronen.

Flying Saucer - Futuro House

The Futuro house is in a giant boat storage yard. When your GPS says that you've arrived, you haven't yet -- keep driving forward about 1/2 mile to the dead end and you'll see it! It's in pretty bad shape. There are other unusual things to see: a half of a boat in storage, and another '60s fiberglass, disassembled, modular futuristic home.

Futuro at dawn.

Flying Saucer - Futuro House

This location is quite scenic and worth a detour just for the sunrise over the harbor...wayyyyyy off the beaten path!

Flying Saucer - Futuro House

The aliens have not been keeping their house in ship shape! This Futuro House has seen better days. Still and interesting road-side curiosity, at the end of a very rural lonely road. It kind of suits it's location. Also a ship among ships where it is too.

Flying Saucer

This full size flying saucer is located near the Bait Box Restaurant in Greenwich, NJ. It was purchased and moved from an amusement park in Bridgeton. It's in pretty bad shape but you can still climb into it. Rumor is that it will be made into a gift shop.

This is actually an old, abandoned Futuro House.
