(Look at that lazy old boy, fast asleep at the foot of the bed. Does he come with the house? It doesn’t seem like he wants to move.)

Not surprisingly, this gorgeous home home has been featured in several home tours.

But living in a glass house may come with some pitfalls. For one, you can’t throw stones. (Stop it House Crazy Sarah!) For two, it would be a bit like living in a fishbowl.

But the current owners have embraced the fishbowl dilemma and made it a financial boon: they have rented out their unique home on AirBnB and it brings in “over $60k annually for half year rentals making this home the top AirBnB in Macon for five years running.”

Wowzers!
