    Mr. Slateís house from the Flintstones?

    Mr. Slateís house from the Flintstones? Anyway, very creative; but itís going to be a tough sell due to its design and drab location. Frank Lloyd Wrightís influence is seen in the built-in furniture and integration into the local landscape.

    Itís a good thing that rain and snow is minimal to non-existent there as Iíll bet flashing the place against leaks was a nightmare.

    Even though the place was started in 1988 and finished in 1993; Iíll bet it cost more than $3-million to build.

    Subject: Bev Doolittle house

    From a friend in So. Cal. Definitely not cookie-cutter!



    This house belongs to a friend's brother and sister in law and is in the town of Joshua Tree-right next to Twentynine Palms. The design is just amazingly creative. I remember when they were building it and it took years and years to complete. I'd always wanted to see it from the inside and this video shows so much. I'd never want to live in it because it seems too big and cold but it's fascinating to see in the video. It belongs to Bev and Jay Doolittle and is on the market for just $3 million if you're interested. Bev is a well known painter.

    Looks really neat. Price tag is a bit high though.

    Farmgirl, I opened it in a new tab and it played.

    Familar with the area, I was stationed at 29 stumps. I couldn't say that this place is "cool". At least 9 months out of the year.

    I would imagine it cost much more to build. 3 million though? YIKES

    Unique but not worth 3 million to me... I wonder what the upkeep on a place like this is.

    Worked this morning. Thanks.

    I liked to "pool/tub", but the rest of it is just blah. I can see where it would have a price tag, due to materials, but I would never pay somebody to come up with that design! Maybe I'm just a simple country girl, but that house holds no glamour for me.

    It would be worth a lot more to me if it were not in CA. Looks like the kind of home that I would visit for about a week.

    That was pretty cool, but completely non-functional for a person like me in a place like PA. I would love to know if the owners did much of the work, or paid for someone to do all of it. If they paid people to do all of it, I would say it cost well over 3 million.

    My guess is that the owners hired peons to do the work. After all, big picture arteests have more important things to do than manual grunt work.

    Actually, looking at the house's design; unless someone is very skilled in numerous trades, it would be tough to construct such a structure as a DIY project and still meet the excessive regulatory requirements of Banifornia.
