Robert Guthrie, of New Orleans, decided he needed a home that put the fuel back into his creativity. So, he bought and renovated a gas station located just outside the city’s French Quarter. Despite the massive skepticism of others, he transformed 2,000 square feet of one of the most unlikely structures into a rather creative living space.

The gas station was built in 1918 and serviced cars until about the mid 60’s. The station went on the market in 2003, and Guthrie snatched it up after ensuring it was safe to live there. After a few delays, such as Hurricane Katrina (luckily he bought insurance two months before), he was finally able to build the marvel you’ll see in the video below.
