FUTURO HOUSE REDUX

It seems there's just more to tell about the spaceship, I've found a few more bits on it and seeing as it attracted more discussion on this blog than any other post I figured people might want to see it all.

As a result of the original post a dude sent a link to his webpage all about Futuro Houses.

There has also been a student video made about it which features members of the Indie Rock band Jebbediah, who actually featured a Futuro House on the cover of their album Slightly Odway

The Futuro House was in Perth as part of the Collier Home Expo and below are some images of it in its' original location. At this time it was being used as a real estate office. It was then moved to the Willetton location.

Hi Tom

Yeah I've been following your blog for a while now.

I don't have anymore info on it other than what is on my blog, if you click the Futuro House tag under the post you'll find 2 more posts on it, one of them very recent.

As far as anyone can tell it ended up in someones backyard in the hills and the latest pics on my blog seem to confirm that.

There is a discussion group on facebook called "Bring Back The Leach Hwy/Karel Ave Spaceship" that's where I found some of my pics, the rest is my own memory. Hope that helps.

almost right, it's actually in a back yard in High Wycombe. The person who has it wants $10,000.00 for it. So I doubt it's going to be reconstructed any time soon :(
