Bosnian builds rotating house to give wife better views

This man built a rotating house to please his wife

LOCATION: Srbac, Bosnia-Herzegovina

who longed for a more diversified view from the family home

(SOUNDBITE) (Bosnian) BUILDER OF ROTATING HOUSE, VOJIN KUSIC, SAYING:

"When I was building our family house, a bedroom was on this side and a children's room was on the other side. Afterwards, my wife didn't like it, she said let's turn it to the other side so that the living room is next to the road, and she said all sorts of things like that. Then I changed the inside, broke out the walls, and had the same problems on the ground floor. I’d had enough of her complaints and frequent refurbishing of our family house and I said: I'll build you a rotating house so you can spin it as you wish, even the entrance itself. So if you see unwanted guests coming, turn the entrance to the other side."

Kusic said the house can make a full circle in 24 hours at its slowest speed

A full turn takes only 22 seconds at its fastest speed

"I did everything by myself, I've been doing this for six years. Every day I did a little bit and I was in no hurry."
