At Over the Top Roofers, we stand for quality and as your dedicated Orlando roofing experts we enjoy creating the roof you desire for your dream home. These are five creative roofs we think will add some extra ‘oomph’ to any home.
Built by the architect Terry Brown in the Hyde Park neighborhood of Cincinnati, Ohio, this home looks like it came right out of a children’s book. The one bedroom home features copper ceilings and a spiral entry way, with intricate detail on the outside walls of the home. The roof on the mushroom house creates a movie-like feel to the home, making this a must-see in Ohio.
The Mystery Castle is located in the city of Phoenix, Arizona. It was built in the 1930s by Boyce Luther Gulley for his daughter Mary Lou Gulley. This 18-room, three-story castle was built from a wide variety of materials, from stones and automobile parts, to telephone poles; you can see that this home has a little bit of everything. Out of our 5 creative roofs, this mystery castle has a Western Mexican appeal, and nothing is repeated in the castle, every corner is different but yet it still has a consistent feel. With all that the home has, you will constantly look to see even the smallest of intricate details.
Haines Shoe House
The Haines Shoe House is a shoe-shaped house in Hellam, Pennsylvania, and if the nursery poem “The little old woman who lived in a shoe” doesn't come to mind, it will when you see this home in our 5 creative roofs. With five levels of rooms, a kitchen and even ice cream area, this home is a child's playground. As a form of advertisement, Mahlon Haines a shoe salesman modeled this home after a work boot in 1948. Now it has become a museum with daily tours, and baked goods for the traveler passing through the home.
Air Force Academy Chapel
Established in Colorado Springs, Colorado, and built in 1962, this Chapel has become a highly regarded example of modernist architecture. With 17 pointed tops, this should truly be included in our 5 creative roofs. An organ inside this building was designed to host worship areas for the cadets of several different religions. You can’t take your eyes off this building, its breathtaking architecture will keep you in awe.
The Shell House
Located on the beautiful island of Isla Mujeres, Mexico, this home is available for you to rent for a romantic getaway or a fun vacation. This unique home, creates a space for you to relax and have fun. There’s also no need to leave the home because it’s more interesting than anything you can possibly see outside of it (we think). You can also experience the Caribbean ocean with the panoramic view from the home. As one of our choices for 5 creative roofs, who doesn’t want to experience living in a shell located at the beach?
