Donkey Kong Barrel Sleeper

Looking to get up close and personal with one of Donkey Kong's barrels without getting bonked on the head? This 1,000-gallon wine drum in Walla Walla, Washington, has been converted into a cozy sleeping pod stationed next to a pool (and a house, but who needs that?).

Though you run the risk of being lifted up into the air and thrown at an enemy in the middle of the night, if that happened you could simply kick open the door and plunge into the pool.

Keep safe from monsters in this Minecraft house

The house you built in Minecraft has nothing on this beautiful villa in Lefkara, Cyprus.
