8 Homes You Literally Won't Believe Are Real

Cross stitch samplers and the Lady Antebellum song certainly got it right. Home is where the heart is — we've always believed this to be true. That being said, our hearts (or fate) can sometimes lead us to very strange living situations.

Ahead, we interviewed eight adventurous nesters who once upon a time resided (or still reside) in structures that aren't your typical four walls and a roof. From a treehouse in Asheville, North Carolina, to a fantastical dome home in Santa Barbara — even a sailboat in New York — these residents share their unique dwelling experiences and prove that home is all about making it work.
