    I agree with Rose. Too much clutter and way...... too much dusting and cleaning. It overloads my senses too. I wouldn't be able to relax for a minute in that place. No offense intended, but I'd rather be in a place with nice clean lines and ease of movement without all the work involved.

    More than likely anyone that didn't have to do the cleaning wouldn't mind a place like this. It is nice, but not my style. Thanks for sharing.

    That must have taken quite some time (and money) to do. Cool.

    One of the most tedious sites I've ever seen to try to visit. Almost as if the sender is more anxious to demonstrate his web prowess than to share the subject.

    Cool! Looks like something you'd see at Disney - sort of surreal.
    Don't know that I'd want to live there though...

    the site was better if you left the "flash" off, that one made me nuts, the html was much better, a neat little ;house. Though it was very busy there were also some wonderful unique uses of building materials and i liked the exterier with the snow on the roof.

    True,does seem a little busy,maybe it was the flash.
    Certainly not model 127-B at the local subdivision.

    Yep,view it in HTML,makes a difference.

    ya, the flash view is pretty crazy. HTML view is easier on the eyes! I liked the site just for getting ideas of things to incorporate into my own home-notice how the kitchen floor was made out of 2x4's and the flooring in the bedroom-old barn planks.

    You all are correct. HTML good. Flash bad. I'd hate to spill anything on the floor in the kitchen.

    I like how they paid attention to the little things, like making wall outlets special, cutting the wood floor funny in some places, and hand-laying the tiles into very interesting patterns. It is a bit much all together, but I have been inspired by many of the ideas presented by this house. I love personalized tile-work, and that flower piece on the floor of the sauna was just gorgeous. Think I might want to do something like that on the floor of our shower someday.

    Thank you for sharing that, forest!

    it's pretty, but my first thought is... how do they heat it?? they must have a separate heater for each "spore." in canada.

    my verdict... impractical, unless one was wealthy.

    I lived close to this home for many years.

    It is in a subdivision and not much land, though a normal house in that area now is in the million dollar range(ski resort)

    Zube lived and worked on this house for many years. I believe it is all heated with wood but it is many years sice I saw it.

    This house was built with alot of scrap and dump supplies over many years. I believe it almost burnt down once.

    It is listed for 5 million now. What a way to retire!

    It looks like something out of a fairy tale. Beautiful workmanship and obviously a labor of love. However, much to cluttered and dark for me. I like clean lines and uncluttered space. It must be a nightmare to keep clean.

    Beautiful. Very Art Nouveau. Five million. I knew the price had to be horrendous, you don't find workmanship like that for cheap. Shoot, if I had five mil to spend on a house, I could afford the maid to dust it.

    I'd say use it for a very unique bed and breakfast or pub or something like that!
