I shit you not.
The world’s only toilet house, called Haewoojae, will be unveiled in Suwon, Gyeonggi Province on November 11. Haewoojae, which literally means “a place where one can solve one’s worries” is a euphemistic expression describing a toilet.
Yeah, I’ve done some of my best thinking on the crapper.
“Sim Jae-duck, owner of the house, is giving Koreans and others an opportunity to be the first to stay there.
A stay in the toilet house will cost $50,000 for one night. The proceeds will be entrusted to the Korea Toilet Association and later used to help provide developing counties with toilet facilities.
Built in the shape of a toilet, Haewoojae is a two-story, 418.72 square-meter construction which is made of steel and concrete. Construction on the house began last May.
Among its many amenities, the house features four deluxe toilets, and even a cozy stream and small garden in the front of the house. The natural and pleasant atmosphere adds to the unique and pleasant aesthetics of Haewoojae. Sim, chairman of the Organizing Committee of the Inaugural General Assembly of the World Toilet Association (WTA), decided to build the toilet house to commemorate the WTA’s upcoming General Assembly in Seoul on Nov. 21-25.”
Well, Suwon has always had the bragging rights for having the best public restrooms in Korea; now the folks there can brag about having the world’s only toilet-shaped house.
