The House on Wade Avenue: A Video by WUNC Radio
About 15 minutes from Raleigh, North Carolina sits a house with a metal roof, doric columns, and green window shutters. But on closer look, it's not really a house because there's no driveway or walkway. The house disguises a water pump station for the city of Raleigh public utilities. The reasoning for this is the city wanted the station to blend in with the architectural style of the neighborhood and to reduce the noise, dampening materials were used in the construction.
