Although this house looks like one from a fairy tale, it is completely real. The company that built it is called The Rustic Way, which specializes in unusual projects. Their buildings are built out of a material obtained from recycling. Company owner Dan Pauly periodically traverses the mid-western United States in search of wood from abandoned houses and barns which is still usable.
He uses it as best he can and builds houses that delight others through their appearance. All the buildings are created by hand! The man comes from a family with a tradition of carpentry and construction and working with wood is an important experience for him.
