Hole N” The Rock: The 5,000-Square-Foot Home Carved from Utah Sandstone - architecture and design

Hole N” The Rock: The 5,000-Square-Foot Home Carved from Utah Sandstone



If nature-centric architecture is your thing, you?ll really be able to appreciate Utah’s Hole N? the Rock. This one-of-a-kind home-turned-attraction is located right off of Highway 191, about 12 miles south of Moab.

Entering the home via built-in rock stairs, you?ll pass a rock garden filled with a large cupid statue surrounded by native cacti and other local plants. The inside is decorated with family heirlooms like Gladys?s original doll collection and vintage tools, many of which were used in the construction of the home. This gives visitors a better understanding of how Albert was able to move 50,000 cubic feet of sandstone all those years ago.

The house also showcases other items that highlight Albert?s skills as a craftsman and artist. For example, he carved a sculpture of Franklin D. Roosevelt that resides above the main entryway. Visitors can also take a closer look at his now-famous Sermon on the Mount painting here.
Now more of a roadside attraction than a home, the property has persevered in the many years since the Christensens’ passings and continues to shine a light on the site’s history. It even boasts its own petting zoo now, catering to the masses for birthday parties and group events alike. As if all that wasn’t reason enough to visit, private tours only run around $7.
