Richard Neal’s former Coast Guard station turned offshore bed-and-breakfast. In May 2010, Neal, a software engineer from Charlotte who doesn’t even own a boat, learned that the U.S. government was auctioning off a massive light and weather station. On a lark, he put in a bid of $11,262; a few rounds of negotiations later, he was the proud owner of the 1964-built platform. After more than a year of rehab, Neal’s tower is now open for business, with room for up to fourteen guests. (via Frying Pan Tower | Garden and Gun)
