Metal House

My aunt--who's an Upstate Indiana Jones of auctions and abandoned houses--sent me this photo of a residence(?) in Greenfield, New York.


This is the most unsettling building I've ever seen. What the hell is it for? I'm betting it's a black-ops torture barn (with recycling bins for people bits)...either that or a very poorly disguised Decepticon.

She's promised me more photos from her adventures so stay tuned...

strangely enough, i've been obsessed with this house since i saw in in archetectual record back in 1993. i'm a record collector and sort of agorophobe who would love... love... love to fill that library with my collection. that place looks like a big chunk of space junk that fell from the sky. i welcome any more photos you can provide. at one time, i found it on google maps, but don't remember the coordinates anymore.

that house is bad ass.
