A lot of this is just "did you know that if you pour concrete into a shape it'll retain that shape? Why not try wasting perfectly good materials to get some ugly rear end shapes?"

The wood burner is neat, though I wonder if the concrete won't eventually crack for the heat. Even then, considering how crazy cheap it'd be compared to a normal clay or steel burner, that'd be neat if it works.

Considering normal bricks can end up cracking or worse under that sort of heat, I 100% don't trust that wood burner.

I was already browsing Zillow because I like looking at pretty/weird houses so I kinda knew what turns of phrase realtors like to use ("adorable and affordable", "if these walls could talk", "condo alternative") also various architectural styles, architects, materials, features etc.

Thats the norm for mobile homes. The house itself is the cheap part, and a lot of people will own that outright, but pay a bunch in rent on the lot.
