a house, it too wouldn't be shaped like a box and in fact, it's hard to find a straight line in this four bedroom, three bath 2000 square foot home. take me through. okay so you notice that when you first entered the house, it's narrow and dark. that's purposely designed that way. you walk from dark to light to the center and a 33 ft ceiling. the house is also built like a boat. so the whole all these this whole floor is one piece. it's two stories, but you won't find stairs and it invites you up. the ramp brings you up and passed a huge plexi glass around window designed to explode light. all the windows here are round. okay, the round windows there round because in an earthquake, which were very prone to of stress and strains are taken tangentially around the frames, so there's no cracking. and while it's known as the fish house, it was actually inspired by something else. one is the most indestructible living thing on the planet. i looked that up,
