Railroad Car

Location: Mercer Island, Wash., USA

Some home-seekers move into former train stations, and one innovative home-remodeler incorporated subway cars into his penthouse apartment in NYC’s West Village, but the Davidsons are way ahead of them all.

For 30 years, they’ve made their home in a 1945 red caboose that sits on rails on 4.25 acres on an island in Lake Washington. Apartment Therapy's tour shows off this charming home's attributes like the picture windows and an 8 by 20 foot deck.
