What Happens When You Abandon Your House In The Desert?

Now that the summer is about to come to an end, a lot of people are leaving their summer houses to sit for the winter until the sun once again starts reaching for the spring. Usually when you come back to it the following summer, everything is pretty much the same. Your things are exactly where you put them, and the house looks like a time capsule from the year before. The few things that have changed are the slightly longer grass outside and the funky smell from the house not being opened for a year.

However, what happens when you leave your house in the desert? Well, if you are planning on coming back, I am sure it’s almost the exact same thing as what’s waiting for you at a regular country house. If you; however, decide to abandon the house due to lack of money or perhaps just because you no longer feel like it’s a good place to stay, well, then you’re in for a treat.

Photographer Alvaro Sanchez-Montanes stumbled upon an abandoned house in the Namib desert and what he found was nothing less that awesome. The entire interior was filled with desert sand and any attempt to save this house would be a failure waiting to happen. Alvaro snapped a few pictures, and it’s something that you just have to see cause I promise you this is something you will probably never see again. Period!
