I'm so glad to identify this house! It's popped up over and over in my Flickr explorations, but never with a good backstory. I'm pretty sure one Flickr user even had it labeled as being in Taiwan! I've finally got some information on this woodsy fairy-lookin' house.

In 1998, architect Terry Brown set out to build his most artful designs into his new house in Ohio. It's full of pounded-metal floors, irregular stained glass windows, and weaving, winding, brightly painted paths and handrails.

Sadly, Brown died in 2008, just ten years after starting his house and only a few years after moving in.

But if you're offbeat house shopping, the house went on the market last month, asking $350,000. I think this house is a good candidate for a lowball bid…
