You know they say about people who live in glass houses, right? Waaaaay too much money.

This is a conceptual all-glass house designed by architect Carlo Santambrogio. Wow, an all-glass house -- real original concept, Carlo. *eyeroll eyeroll* What next -- building stairs so people can move between floors? Doors to keep the elements out but still allow human access? Such an innovator! You getting all this, Frank Lloyd Wrong?

At £4,000 (~$6,250) per square metre, a typical three bedroom family home would cost about £400,000 to build.


But if you have the funds, architect and glass designer Santambrogio is willing to design almost any glass structure you can think of.

Almost every aspect of the house is made of glass, from the dining table, to the stairs, but it seems comfort still comes first.

The bed is one of the only items not to be made of glass.

Call me spoiled, but glass house or not, I still want my next place to have a shitter. Because I am NOT going outside. 1) It looks cold out there, and 2) bears. You ever seen those Charmin commercials? Those f***ers won't hesitate to steal your TP and leave you nothing but a trail of buttcrumbs. And buttcrumbs, as Hansel and Gretel will attest to, are not the sort of thing you can rely on to lead you out of the woods. "Dammit GW, those were bread crumbs." Haha, you sure? I thought all that candy gave them diarrhea.

Hit the jump for some interior shots of the maybe I don't wanna see my family naked all the time.

Thanks to Revan, who wants to live in an all diamond house that way he can chip off a little piece and sell it if money ever gets tight. SOLID THINKING.
