We love to admire stunning dream homes and we’re sure that when for some rather obscure reason we would be able to move into one of those homes we would never ever leave. Some people feel the same way, the only difference is they live in a rather ordinary home, nevertheless, they are determined to stay. Even when offered $1 million or more they won’t move. The result of this stubbornness (or dedication) is displayed perfectly in these photos, which has even inspired the iconic home in Disney’s film Up.
