Women and Their Problems: Man Builds Rotating House for Wife, After Several Complaints

After getting tired of her "complaining", a man, Vokin Kusic has single-handedly built a rotating house for his wife.

Kusic, who is a self-taught innovator, said his wife complained that the view of their home was boring and that she wanted a home with a more diverse view, so he built her a home where she could watch the sunrise in one moment and passers-by in the next.

In an interview with Reuters, the 72-year-old man said: "I've got tired of her complaints and the frequent refurbishing of our family house and I said: I'll build you a rotating house so you can spin it as you wish."

The unique home is situated in the town of Srbac in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The house spins around a seven-metre axis designed by Kusic, with the view changing from cornfields and farmland to forests and the river.

Mr. Kusic said: "The house can make a full circle for 24 hours when it's at the slowest speed, while at the fastest spinning it can make a full circle in 22 seconds."

Kusic explained that he drew inspiration from Serbian-American inventors, Nikola Tesla and Mihajlo Pupin, but coming from a poor family without the possibility of a good education had forced him to look for ways to make things by himself.

He said the project took six years to finish, except time off for a hospital stay due to a heart condition. He added that the house is more resistant to earthquake damage than stationed houses,.

He said: "I asked doctors to try to prolong (my life) for at least a year because I have this project in my head, and ... nobody will know how to complete it."
