When potential homebuyers search for the perfect place to spend their lives, the typical debate is usually between finding a house with a more modern appearance or an older domicile with a lot of character. Others, however, may be looking for a forever home with a more unique style.
"While it might seem like the United States is stuffed with cookie-cutter dwellings, some homes break the mold in a big way. These unique places might be a tough sell, but the represent thee blood, sweat, and tears of builders who dared to think outside the box (and brick)."
The most unusual house in Louisiana is situated in what was once a place where drivers would fill up their cars. This converted gas station in New Orleans transformed a century-old fuel station into a place that anyone could be happy to call home.
