  • I really like the contrast between the house and the interior structure of the hanger..

  • joey

    i kinda wish the skull wasn’t there… it’s beautiful anyhow.

  • lapetitefaon

    god, I want to see this in person! / see photos of the inside of the house? I love the skull!

  • I hate to be ‘THAT’ guy, but the house was built single handedly in two months by Mr. Brent Kerr, Kid Zoom just painted it.

  • Ruth

    To be fair there was a construction team of over 10 people who worked on it. Including builders, the architect, carpenters, art designers, scenic artists and volunteers.
    The entire project had a team of over 25 people work on it.

  • I can’t wait to see what this kid does in the future. His work at Opera Gallery in NYC was amazing.

  • Bone78

    amazing!

  • JeffyP

    I was there for this, it was incredible.
