Alaska's Goose Creek Tower Looks Like It Was Plucked From a Dr. Seuss Book

This tower, which has several cabins stacked on top of one another, is referred to by locals as "The Dr. Suess House."

It's amazing what happens when you let your imagination run wild. When Phillip Weidner started building his cabin in Alaska, he saw an opportunity to build upward, and that's exactly what he did, stacking one house on top of the next to create a one-of-a-kind home. 


The result was the whimsical Goose Creek Tower, a 185-foot-tall home that looks like it could have been plucked straight from the pages of a Dr. Seuss book. In fact, this comparison led to the tower's nickname among locals: "The Dr. Seuss House."


"I wanted to be able to see," Weidner explained in an interview with Great Big Story. "That's the reason I went up. You can actually see for at least 300 miles."

Weidner, a graduate of MIT, says that he didn't follow any blueprints when constructing the tower, which resembles several cabins stacked on top of each other. He took it one story at a time, stopping only when he reached federal air space. Check out this tour of the amazing home:

Weidner says he hopes his outside-the-box home inspires other people to pursue their wild ideas: "I hope Goose Creek Tower will inspire other people to do worthwhile things, not just in buildings, but in whatever they do in their life." 


It just goes to show that if you can dream it, you can do it!
