More examples of Chinese houses, which the property owners have refused to move out of, despite the construction that is taking place around them.
When the local government of the city of Wenling, China, decided to build a new motorway, they offered all residents occupying the land, relocation compensation. However, this elderly couple refused to move as they felt that the offer was too low to cover the cost of rebuilding. As a result, the motorway was built around their home and the house now stands right in the middle of the newly built motorway. Cars travelling on the road are forced to drive around the stranded building.
