How can you turn down your very own 17,000 sq. ft. cave house, for just $300,000 on eBay? Who could say no to this peculiar adventure in modern design, landscape engineering and three internal, bubbling springs? Not to mention a 400-sq. ft. gourmet kitchen?
The owners are facing the end of a 5-year balloon loan, and are on the brink of foreclosure. They don't seem, in the video below, too distraught about possibly losing their rocky investment, so doubt you will be, either. And I suspect we'll get so used to seeing this story -- someone's mini-Versailles suddenly ripped from over their heads -- that it soon won't register anymore, if it even still does. Sympathy is in increasingly short supply for people who dreamt too big, thinking they could outsmart a daunting financial risk.
So, here's to you, Caveman. Your dreamy lair inspires me, and I hope you figure out a way to hang on to our dream. Because when your dream dies, a lot of others will, too.
