In case you ever wanted to experience farm living without having to get up at 4 am to milk the cows, you need to take a gander (pun intended) at the Ark House. Though at first glance it actually does just look like a conventional barn, this abode is leaps and bounds ahead of your average horse shelter. The two peaks are connected by a long bridge with the main part of the house being in the furthest section, and it has three floors of modern living.

The Ark House is the epitome of sustainable living. Featuring a geothermal heating system, which is a huge energy saver, and photovoltaic panels to meet the home's entire energy needs for the whole year, the house has almost no ecological footprint.
