You may recall last year RiotACT ran a story about a rotating house being built in Crace?
Well it has been built, and you can buy it.
From concept to reality, superior in every way……’Girsasole’ (meaning to turn to the sun) is the brain child of well-respected local builder John Andriolo of MAG Constructions ACT P/L. This truly amazing home has been his dream since he was a 10-year-old Italian boy and was inspired by the teachings of Italian physicist, Galileo.
Supported by 28 wheels and driven by two whisper quiet motors, the home can rotate through 360 degrees and has been designed to literally track the winter sun through the living areas and avoid the harsh Australian sun in summer. It is able to operate at three speeds and is controlled by a touch screen panel, this is high tech, environmentally friendly living at its best.
The auction is next month, so break open your coin jars and check under the couch cushions.
Also, I turned 30 this week and you didn’t get me a present Rioters. So if all of you want to chip in together and buy me a rotating house, I would be totally cool with that.
