House of the rising bucks

This year's Oklahoma City Orchestral League Designer Show House is one of the most distinctive homes in the entire area; I've passed it by many times and wondered what it might be like. (It's hard not to, especially now that I'm living within a couple of miles of it.)

Anyway, it looks like I may get my chance to get a peek at the inside when the Show House opens next month. And if someone hands me a winning Powerball ticket between now and the end of May — well, I can't see spending $1.4 million on a home, but truth be told, I'm thinking it's a bargain at that price.

Linking to this item:

1.4 million for a house, not a home. You can't buy a home, ya dumpkopf. :) Anyway, I wouldn't pay that much for a house without at least a view of a house that has a pretty ok view of a beach (if you stand on a chair).

Terkish Payne, even *that* house would be 3 million, but I'm living in the 80's in too many ways to count.

Beaches, alas, are few and far between out here in the middle of the prairie.

Although we do have a fair amount of sand.

There is a building in Milwaukee's western suburbs which was the Christmas show house for some charity (cancer IIRC) a few years ago, which has a unique view of the local nature preserve. I drive past it fairly often at various times of day and have never seen any sign of life there.

Proof once again that, as notorious madame Polly Adler pointed out, a house is not a home.
