    Yes! I noticed LIGHTS on in the house a few nights ago. It was really cool--the angle of the ceiling and the windows blend in with the night sky and the lights inside the house look like stars. :cool:

    That is the first sign of life I've seen in that house (other than construction) in the 6 1/2 yrs. I've lived a mile away from it.

    I am liking it more and more myself....someday, in the distant future I could see it become a Maritme/Nature Museum along the lines of the innovative Guggenheim in NYC.

    From the overhead view you can see the Bird of Paradise that I've been told the house was designed to represent.

    Nice 3d!

    Looks great. What software did you use? SketchUp, like daughter used when she was an architecture major at MIT? Hubby adores SketchUp.

    Not as of late, it will probably never be finished. There is now a guest cottage of the same design going up to the east of the main house.

    Could be wrong but they were suposed to be building a house for their daughter on the property - or so I was told early on.

    I toured it two years ago and they were only half way done with the insulation. The contractor at that time said it had been under construction for 10 YEARS!:shock:

    Actually, i was told by the architect that the house has been under construction for so long due to the large amount of other work that the contractor has...or has had the past decade...

    If ever completed, this house should be in a movie...like Frank Lloyd Wright's 'Ennis House' on Blade Runner and House on Haunted Hill.

    Well, since he doesn't like turtles, calls them the little critters, I just hope he never gets the lights on.
