When I was a kid I would daydream about being older and able to build my own house.  Not just build...but design. I'd put in all sorts of secret rooms and tunnels that lead from room to room. Slides that connected the second and first floor.

Fun stuff. But...realistic stuff too. I guess I'm not as adventurous of a daydreamer as I thought because I NEVER thought about building a spaceship house that spins.

Somonauk, Illinois' Most Famous House

This is a "dome-style" house designed by a Montreal company and took over 3 years to build.  Every stud, beam, and wall covering looks to be custom cut including the "Velux windows that were imported from Denmark."

About The Spaceship House

"Inside, you'll find 4 beds, 3 full baths, and 2 half baths with ABSOLUTELY jaw-dropping arched cathedral ceilings of knotty pine and oak flooring. The bonus-sized fully equipped kitchen offers a huge breakfast bar next to an oversized dining space. Along with boundless, creative entertaining space, the main level living area is complete with a built-in projector screen and deck area overlooking the rear of the property.

The home's set on a 12' square foundation with the ability to rotate electronically or manually." -Zillow


That's what they say. They built it to spin 330 degrees and then rotate back.  You can either program a device to make it spin or do it manually like when you used to push your friends on the merry-go-round. I'd imagine you'd need some help with this fun ride!
