That sounds too cool. You're lucky to see something like that. The description sounded awesome,
I couldn't imagine seeing it. [Show/Hide Quoted Message](Quoting Message by spapad from Thursday, March 18, 2010 8:01:08 PM)
That is SO cool.
I wish the home of a man in this area would come up to being a place to be showed. If his kids didn't strip the furniture out of the place.
I will have to take a picture of it someday. All you can see above ground is what looks like a rook in a pawn game, with a door in it. the whole house is underground. This man was an amazing woodworker and all the furniture in the place was hand made. Very "Knights of the Round Table" type stuff. beautiful inlaid woodwork. I was lucky, I came by the house when he was still alive and asked him right out if I could please see it! I wish I had a camera when I went in there! WOW, is all I can say. Thrones, large carved tables, beautiful couches, all hand made. I fear after he died much of those works of art were removed.
I really thought the lighting was kind of low, but somehow, it lent it'self to the ambiance of the past. Low light like candle light. The house was warm in the winter and took next to nothing to Cool in the Summer due to the fact the land was it's insulation. Darn, wish I had a camera when I went there.

Here's something a few of you may find interesting. I think it's called Miller's Castle.
I'm not sure. It's in Colorado. It was built by hand by Jim Miller(?). The wife and I were
vacationing out there and some locals showed it to us. It's quite a bit bigger than it looks.
The middle floor is a large open area with a sound system. He has bands and parties there.
Anyone can visit, he just asks for donations to help sustain the place. I thought it was a very
cool place. Peace!
