Bottoms-Up Bungalow

Sometimes you have to turn your world upside down to make a difference. A builder on the island of Borneo has done his part to draw attention to the environment by creating a “house in reverse,” or Rumah Terbalik in his Malaysian language. The topsy-turvy living quarters include furniture, appliances, light fixtures and even a toilet attached to the ceiling (I won’t even attempt to imagine the logistics of that).

The builder claims his vice-versa villa is a reminder that we’re depleting our natural resources, and that one day we’ll find our entire world has turned upside down.

I’m focusing on the best part: According to the website, the house, even in reverse, is wheelchair accessible. If I ever find myself in southeast Asia with my hubby, you can bet Rumah Terbalik will be on our bucket list of local attractions.
