This Father Explains That He And His Son Live In A Petrol Station. You'll Never Believe It When You See What's Inside.

This man decided to turn a petrol station into a home. The artist has truly transformed the building that he now lives in with his son.

Robert Guthrie decided he would go about getting the house he always dreamed of in a rather unusual way. This dad bought a gas station from 1918 to turn it into a 185 square metre home. The artist settled there with his son and decided to mix old and new to make it an original and unusual house. He really personalised each room by adding his own personal touch. After buying it for just under £90,000 it's turned out to be a really smart investment.

In this house, which is situated near the French Quarter of New Orleans in the United States, he has kept the old wood of the gas station. He also recycled headlights to make lamps in his bathroom. He used car logos to make drawers in the kitchen. He even reused metro station tiles for the bathroom. Robert Guthrie has added a modern twist to the old gas station with a Jacuzzi, a modern kitchen and a rooftop terrace.
