Who’s for a $1.6 million house shaped like a toilet?

Luxury looThe founder of the World Toilet Association  is to live in a luxury loo.   Sim Jae-Duck’s  419 square metre concrete and glass home Suweon, 40 kilometres south of Seoul, is lavatory-shaped building. The house has two bedrooms, two guest rooms and, of course, four toilets, one of which is situated in a showcase bathroom in the centre of the building. The WTA is being formed in South Korea with the aim of providing clean sanitation to the more than 2.6 billion people who live without toilets. Jae-Duck was himself born in a restroom  some 74 years ago because his mother followed his grandmother’s advice – namely, that people born in restrooms will enjoy long lives.
