Man Raises Money To Build His Own House….on The Moon

Swedish artist Mikael Genberg is raising money to build a small house measuring 6 and half by 10 feet on the surface of The Moon. Simply dubbed The Moonhouse, the Swedish style red cottage is intended more as an art project rather than actual living quarters (I mean, would anyone actually want to live on the airless, lifeless, boiling surface, that’s pelted with the Sun’s deadly radiation?).

Genberg is hoping to have the house dropped off on the Moon’s surface by october of 2015 when SpaceX’s Falcon 9 mission arrives. The house is outfitted with a thin space cloth, which is stretched over a thin carbon structure. It will unfold and automatically construct itself once on the lunar surface, so they won’t have to get around any union issues by having any workers actually have to go to the Moon and build this thing.

Genberg seems to like these out of the ordinary construction projects. In 2000, he created the Utter Inn (Otter in English) which is an underwater hotel room in a lake near Stockholm.

The goal for The Mooonhouse is $15 million. As of June 3rd, 2014 they’ve only raised about &4,268 so they’ve obviously got a ways to go.
