One Of The Few Remaining Futuro Houses In The U.S. Is Right Here In Delaware

If you’ve driven past the Eagle Crest Airport, you might have noticed a strange flying saucer that looks like it landed straight from outer space. This isn’t a visitor from outer space, though – it’s a Futuro House!

Just when you think you’ve seen it all, we’re here to tell you about Delaware’s very own flying saucer. No, it’s not an alien ship – it’s a Futuro House!
