Giant Basket Building in Ohio

This photo is real. Do you remember how in the story of the Three Little Pigs, one of the foolish pigs builds a house of straw. And of course, it comes tumbling down when the Big Bad Wolf comes calling. But Dave Longaberger decided he could build one better than the fictional character. Longaberger, Founder of The Longaberger Company, built his home office as a huge basket. Though most people believed he was only joking, he pushed onward and had the structure finished in 1997. Since then, the giant basket has won a Build Ohio Award for its synthetic plaster system.
