This unique “Dr. Seuss House”, as it has been nicknamed by the locals, is situated near the town of Willow, Alaska. It’s completely distinguished architecture has a very interesting story behind it. The original owner of this weird and beautiful home had been working on extending the house vertically for 10 years. Unfortunately, he died and the house was abandoned.
Why did the former owner keep extending the house? When he first built his house, the construction had a view of Denali/Mt. McKinley. He built his home after a forest fire, so all the trees surrounding this area were really short. As time passed, the trees kept getting taller and the building’s view was being obstructed.
The owner decided it was time to take matters into his own hands. He decided to add another level to his house. As the years passed, the trees kept outgrowing his home and the owner kept on building, until he reached a satisfying height.
Unfortunately, the house now lies in disrepair, but somebody recently bought the house and plans on renovating it completely. The “Dr. Seuss House” will soon be restored to its former glory and people who wander around Alaska will have yet another reason to visit the state’s wilderness.
If you plan on visiting this amazing house just remember that although it lies abandoned for now, the house is still located on private property and you are not allowed to trespass. However, you can walk around the Alaskan wilderness and admire the house from outside. It’s an incredible sight to see!
