I am rather new to this whole blogging thing but overall I believe that ya gotta be original. However from time to time ya'all are gonna have to bear with me as I include things that catch my fancy.

For instance:
I think everyone has always had the daydream where all the stars aligned right for them and the most stupendous thing that could ever happen, happens. Shoot Hollywood has made millions and billions off that very notion.
Well just in case Mr. Gates or the ghost of Howard Hughes or some wealthy benefactor just happens to be in a generous mood and just happens to be wandering through the this corner of the internet.
This is my Dream Home ( not house : A house is a structure. Home: home is where you are happiest.)

Cave house for sale in Festus, MO

Posted: 20 Feb 2009 06:23 AM CST

$300,000 is the starting bid on this eBay listing for a three-bedroom home built in a 15,000 sqft cave in Festus, MO, formerly a concert venue that entertained the MC5, Ike and Tina Turner and Ted Nugent. Sounds like a hell of a place to live (and you gotta feel for the family that's losing their dream). It's got three freshwater springs and there are fourteen waterfalls on the property. Yowza.

On May 19th, 2008, the City of Festus approved our occupancy inspection for the cave. Officially, this completed our project. There are still projects that can be started, completed and developed. Plenty of room in our 17,000 square foot home.

This is now where we live, work, raise our family and celebrate life! Here are a few of the details about the place: Historic, regionally famous cave: 15,000 square feet, divided into three main chambers.

The front chamber houses the main part of the 3-bedroom finished house.

The middle chamber holds the laundry room, storage, and a spare bath. The middle chamber made a great party room. 80 feet by 80 feet.

The back chamber still has the stage where Ted Nugent, Bob Seger, Ike and Tina Turner, the MC5 and many other bands performed.

Property: 2.8 scenic, partially wooded acres provide excellent privacy and the feel of the country right in the middle of town, just several blocks from shopping, dining, and other conveniences.

Energy efficiency: Geothermal and passive solar keep the home comfortable year-round without a furnace or air conditioning. In spite of the vast size of the home, our energy costs here run about the same as they did in our 800 square-foot starter home. The home naturally stays a little cooler than the average above-ground home, but we found that we acclimated quickly and easily.

Unique Cave Home over 15,000 sf. Beautiful setting
