All homes have their quirky moments, unusual corners, and odd angles. Some even have some bizarre rooms and downright peculiar architectural features. But where most homes share at least some basic conventions of location and spatial configuration, this year we've featured some unusual spaces that defy even these most basic assumptions. "Unusual" is all relative, of course, but all of these homes, from the small to the large, from the seaworthy to the airborne, have presented unique design challenges for their owners, all of whom, I must say, have overcome them admirably.
