A guy builds a real-life Flintstone house and the shower is yabba-dabba-doo. Do you ever wonder what it would be like to live in the Stone Age??
How about in Fred Flintstone’s house??
One couple decided to style the exterior of their Hillsborough California home like the popular cartoon ‘The Flintstones’. But, they ran into a little trouble when they tried selling the expensive home back in 2015.
So, they decided to come up with an ingenious plan to make some money out of it. Now anyone can stay in here for a night. That will have you screaming yabba-dabba-doo.
But, when you look even further, you will notice that this property isn’t quite normal and while it might look orange and purple now, it used to be painted off-white when it was originally constructed back in 1976.
It involved applying shotcrete to the steel rebar structure and a number of mesh frames that were held in place by inflated balloons. The doors, the windows and even chimney and shrubs, surrounding; they give it that nifty stone-age look.
Once you walk in through the front door, you will find the inside looks a little more modern. Tiling and unique works of Arts on the walls make it just as interesting.
It’s like a cross between Stone Age and Navajo dwelling with exotic color schemes that Fred and Wilma would kill for. There’s lighting partially hidden on the slits of walls, near the ceiling and air-conditioning vents in this cave like dwelling.
But, it wasn’t always so back in the 80s, the home had fallen into a horrible state of disrepair. Water runoff from a nearby mountain had caused serious damage to the foundation, making it necessary to repair the home and then transform it into this amazing prehistoric Wonderland.
There’s a center island attached to the roof of the house. It has a skylight and the interior does contain a lot of modern furniture. In fact, a lot of people are crying beasts because of the experimental design.
It cost them eight hundred thousand dollars and it’s attracted a lot of curious passers-by. Not to mention, criticism from those who call this home an eyesore.
They’re like gargoyles staring at you as you wash your face, brush your teeth or get dress. It has even been rumored to have been purchased by a variety of celebrities over the years.
