These lifeguard towers could be the perfect summer homes, as long as you don't mind sand everywhere or small living quarters. But small living quarters shouldn't be an issue with gorgeous sand and miles of beach right outside the door.

Lifeguard towers have never looked so inviting. Check out the gallery for examples of simple designs turned into clever shelters. Beach lovers and outdoorsy types would pay plenty to have such unique and nature-friendly homes.

Implications - These lifeguard stations are no wooden shed! In fact, beach-goers will likely be envious of the luxury towers that are more than livable. The prime beachfront real estate is quiet, isolated and pimped out -- who wouldn't want to live there?
