Considering that, until today, I only peripherally knew what a grain silo was, that's a pretty big statement. Seriously, why do we make square houses at all?

Architect Christoph Kaiser designed and built this Phoenix, Arizona home in a used grain silo that he picked up from Kansas farmer. How rural. He and his wife live happily in the small space thanks to his smart design which uses every inch. Look at this gem!

It's less then 200 square feet but feels plenty spacious thanks to the open plan and custom interior. Custom as in Kaiser made everything in this space — from the kitchen cabinets to the furniture and even the lamp that also stores pots and pans.

Most of the wood on the interior is scrap walnut flooring, which he picked up on Craigslist. Reused and recycled inside and out! Way to be, guys. Bravo.
