Seeking to please his wife who had wished for a more diversified view from their family house, a Bosnian self-taught innovator has built a rotating house, allowing her to watch a rising sun in one moment and passers-by in the next.

72-year-old Vojin Kusic said he got tired of his wife's complaints and frequent refurbishing of the family house, before telling her: "I'll build you a rotating house so you can spin it as you wish".

Situated on a fertile plain in northern Bosnia near the town of Srbac, the house spins around a seven-metre axis designed by Mre Kusic, with the view of cornfields and farmland changing to forests and the river at a desired speed.

"The house can make a full circle for 24 hours when it's at the slowest speed, while at the fastest spinning it can make a full circle in 22 seconds," Mr Kusic said.

His wife did not wish to comment on the new house.

"When I was building our family house, a bedroom was on this side and a children's room was on the other side. Afterwards, my wife didn't like it, she said let's turn it to the other side so that the living room is next to the road, and she said all sorts of things like that," he said.

"Then I changed the inside, broke out the walls, and had the same problems on the ground floor. I’d had enough of her complaints and frequent refurbishing of our family house and I said: 'I'll build you a rotating house so you can spin it as you wish, even the entrance itself.

"So if you see unwanted guests coming, turn the entrance to the other side."
