This is the gate to the House of Iron I posted February 27. I still find this novel house an amazing structure for its design and the owner's willingness to attempt something so unusual.
some strange entrance

This guy is so inventive. Do you know the concept of "A Folly"-it's an old(16th, 17th Century) English word for (generally) a building built completely out of style for fun (Examples - Someone with a half-sized Stonehenge in their garden, A fairy tale castle in the middle of a wood, an Aztec temple in a field etc etc) This guy has taken folly up to 21st century standards!

@CElliottUK: I hadn't read of the "folly" idea, but his work fits this idea very well. Thanks for commenting about it.
Very strange entrance ! Interesting subject

wow . . I'd missed the original posting and was not prepared for what lay behind such a 'cute' gateway ! Huge amount of effort has gone into this edifice but I'm glad I don't live opposite..

Very cool piece of work. You have to waonder about the mind that concieved it and then decided it was a good idea to build it, however.

I kinda like this structure and even the house of iron is very unique. I would love to drive by it every day. MB

if someone ever needed a visual example of "eclectic" this would be it! how very original and unusual! three cheers for you for "capturing" it!
