    The house is probably my dream home. I'd love to get into it because it's so reminiscent of my favorite architect, Le Corbusier. The magic of his spaces was the lighting. It would be interesting to know if the architect has captured dynamic lighting effects inside. .

    To me it kinda looks like a place that a Morman Sect would inhabit with 130 women and 400 kids :dunno:

    Unlikely. Corbu was French. Most, but not all, of his buildings are in Europe.

    Yeah, I know the Texas part was a joke...

    Guess I'm a compulsive record setter-straighter.

    You're all wrong.

    I'd say about 97% of the idle speculation I've read about ALL of the houses in Paradise by the Sea is wrong. I'm the slum lord of the neighborhood and in a position to know. We may have our problems but if you want to build a castle by the sea that reflects your individual tastes, Paradise by the Sea is really the best place available in the area to do so. To each his own, but personally I think the homes in our neighborhood are fascinating.

    Paradise by the Sea will never be classy enough until somebody erects a flagpole taller than Donald Trump's.

    I don't know, they might not have enough money around here to swing a giant flagpole...or maybe patriotism is an issue?

    Paradise Sea, I would hate to think I have posted something about Paradise or Charlie's job that is incorrect. Was there something I said?

    Just to clarify. The sect to which you refer in NOT Mormon and has nothing to do with the Mormon Church. The Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (FLDS) and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS or Mormon) are not the same and have nothing to do with each other.

    I like the idea that the homeowners of Paradise have an individual concept to build what "they like".
    I'm all about self expression ............... :clap:

    I agree. Props to Charles and Arthur Dyson for the amount of time it took to develop the design and actually make it happen. Whether you like it or not, I still think of it as a great architectural/structural achievement.

    No pictures anyone?

    That house will never be completed. There is a bit of sordid history behind it.

    Hello everyone! We love to see the progress made on the ''ship house'', (as my kids call it), everytime we come down there! PLEASE do tell us some of the details of the sorrid past this house has!!! It's really fascinating to hear about it and to see it in person!!

    No, most of your comments fall into the 3% category. However, I doubt that even 1.000 employees could finish the Hilton House. The problems are not just labor related.
