    Tom Hanks got his break on Bosum Buddies a little while later. (I'm of the age that I remember watching Bosum Buddies and Benson in first run, but only got the jokes in Soap many years later when it was in syndication)

    I heard, not to long ago, the reason it's not going to be completed is, he pays taxes on a $5,000,000 constuction loan and not $30,000,000 when completed. Must be nice. It is quite the home. Hope they have an open house someday.

    The original intent was that the home would blend into the beach from the sky. Then folks started putting something other than the original color of beach sand back onto the beaches for re-nourishment and whala....he has to change the color of his home to blend to the new beach color. It's just a thought. :lol:

    I would love to know who said that. Sowal locals and their stories amaze me every time. How on earth does that even make sense?

    That would be quite the miracle as I was born in '80. :D

    See below.

    The fact that anyone thinks that Charlie Hilton has a loan to build that thing is beyond me. Why pay interest when you can pay cash? If you look it up it's currently worth almost 4 million and last year was magically worth almost 6 million. Guess he doesn't have quite the pull in Walton county as he did in Bay county with Barnett.

    local architecture

    I went exploring today thru Scenic 30-A. As we were driving thru Watercolor, Seaside, Rosemary Beach. I noticed incredible house on the water side/ocean that is being constructed.

    What type/kind of home is that? Any details?

    Thanks.

    I have loved watching it be built but have wondered whether it may eventually be used for scuba diving.

    Sowal Member ParadiseSea has a great property in there across from Charlie Hilton's work of art. It may be the highest point in that whole area and has super strong views.

    I think Paradise experiences a micro-climate. I understand there is a cavern just off shore that heads back in under the Hilton House. Check it out.

    You can feel the front there hit you everytime when you pass on a motorcycle.
