In an interview with the channel, Nick said the entire house is made of fiberglass, with layers of foam insulation between the sheets to retain heat within the building.
The UFO House is 8 meters wide and 4 meters high, but many guests are surprised that it actually feels much larger.
Nick spent a year transforming the original Futuro home into the modern, livable building it is today.
There are two buttons (red and green) on the outside of the house that control a hatch to enter and exit the house.
Pressing the red button leads to a series of stairs leading up from the house, tying into the intergalactic theme.

The room is also filled with memorabilia such as 70’s TVs and old-fashioned radios.
Nick also installed a kitchen in the space, keeping with the retro UFO theme that runs through the space.
“It’s all fiberglass molded, too,” Nick said, adding, “So the whole point of the Futuro is that it’s all fiberglass because it’s all molded. is,” he said.
Finally, the renovator showed viewers an impressive bedroom hidden behind a hidden wall.
“The layout we created here is exactly as per the original specifications. [Futaro home]” revealed Nick.

Nick’s vision is of a house straight out of Avatar, covered in LED lighting throughout.
And with its location next to a pool, colorful statues, saunas, and colorful seating areas, the entire environment looks like it’s been cut straight out of the galaxy.
Nick’s Airbnb post for the “dome” says it sleeps up to 9 people and has a whopping 4.98 star review.
