If you've been in or around Lubbock for a while, you know about the Robert Bruno Steel House.

In fact, if you watch shows on channels like HGTV, you've probably seen it too, as it's been featured nationally. The home is a steel house located in Ransom Canyon. It's equal parts UFO and pig in its design, and it's 100 percent fascinating.

The steel house is a labor of love for the late Robert Bruno, who built and updated the house from 1974 until his death in 2008. The steel house overlooks Lake Ransom Canyon and is handcrafted from 150 tons of steel, each piece welded by Bruno. The interior is mostly natural wood with stained glass adorning most of the windows. There's around 2,200 feet of space inside.

Some say the Bruno masterpiece is unfinished, but to me, that just adds to the mystique and beauty of the atmosphere. The good news is that folks will soon be able to take in the atmosphere of the Robert Bruno Steel House, as the new owners of the property, Blake and Courtney Bartosh, are renovating it and plan to make it available as a VRBO destination.
