Stunning collection -- and reading about your dedication to it (building the house) is even more impressive. (Color me pea-green with envy!)
I am very proud of my home since I built it with my own hands. At the age of 42 (14 years ago) I embarked on the biggest project of my life. I bought an ugly house on a 1 acre lot that I loved and proceeded to throw most of it away. They took (9) 30-yard dumpsters out of here before I was through. I rebuilt the house over a 2.5 year period working on it 7 days a week until we moved in.
I took a standard "broad-front" ranch and rearranged the floor plan, opened everything up and added a 2-story 1,300 square foot addition to it. The house had a walk-out lower level with a low ceiling. I tore out 1,600 square feet of concrete and lowered the lower level floor by almost 2 feet. My finished ceiling are now the standard 8-feet tall. This is important to me because I'm 6'5" tall.
Everything about the house is built around my size and our art collection. I knew where all the major pieces were going so the house is really designed around them. Thanks for asking.
Wow, what kind of a house does it take to store/display all this great collectibles?
