The only moving house I have heard of recently is house on walking legs. So, when you want to move your house or in a flooding situation, your house can move (well, its the legs that move)...but i think this is still in the designing stages.

There are already plenty of rotating buildings, especially restuarants. Doesn't the CN tower rotate? And of course, Oceans 12...

Quote from: article
The 420-metre (1,378-foot) building's apartments would spin a full 360 degrees, at voice command, around a central column by means of 79 giant power-generating wind turbines located between each floor.

.... and they'll all have to wear huge noice reduction helmets .....

BBC ought to re-check their sources me thinks...... [::)] [;D]
