There is one line of truth in the description of the house:

"This house is so UNIQUE that there is no known architectural classification for its style."

Nice house...the only thing I would change is the lighting for the art gallery.

We need a baby room designed for our Cliff May. Do you think the designer of this house can fit us into his OBVIOUSLY busy schedule? And.. just when I think I'm over morning sickness I catch a gander of this "beauty". :sick:

Just because I think this skit needs to be viewed at least twice a year, and this seems to be one of those times . . . Mike's Marbleopolis:

I love the neon in Las Vegas, and like the kitsch of the exteriors of many of the casinos, but the interiors of most of the casinos make me puke.

I kinda like the exterior of this one, but large parts of the interior reminds me of the interiors of Las Vegas casinos.

Feh!!!

What cracks me up is that everything is so over the top...and then you get to the kitchen. After all the fabulous "antique Italian marble" crap, you get old ceramic tile counter tops and the cruddiest looking wood cabinets around. It doesn't even look 80's. It's like the cheapest crappiest late 60's tract-house kitchen was transplanted into the house.
