A New Form of Prefab

Xin Yucai, 50, of Shenyang city in the Liaoning province in Northeast China, has built a home out of two cement pipes. Although his daughter invited him to live with her in her apartment, he turned the offer down, since he loves living in his home so much.

"He bought two cement pipes from a construction company and turned them into a real house, with windows, door, and even a chimney," says Xin Yucai's daughter.

Even though they moved, Xin took the cement pipe house with him. The house has become something of a city attraction, with visitors taking their pictures outside of the structure.
