China’s Government Paves a Highway Around Stubborn Homeowners

By • Nov 26th, 2012 • Category: Architecture, Latest Posts, Weird

In order to build a new road, the Chinese government had to move a village of over 1000 people – two, however, said they would stay till the bitter end and didn’t leave. It wouldn’t be a big deal, only now their house stands alone in the middle of a new motorway of Xiayangzhang village in the province of Zhejiang. The phenomenon of a lone house that wasn’t torn down due to the constructions is called a “nail house” in China, referring to the image of an ingrown nail that’s painful and almost unable to remove.
