    Not even remotely interested in this house. It just looks terrible.

    What a fantastic piece of art! It's like a scfi fi set, a steel cathedral. I would totally live there. The acoustics must be fucking AWESOME

    I love the fact that it's in Lubbock, and that the artist (now dead) worked on it for decades.

    i think it's awesome. and it was obviously a huge labour of love for the sculptor. i don't think you're meant to look at it as a piece of real estate because it's so idiosyncratic and unique to the man who built it and wanted to live there.

    It's very organic and blends into the landscape surprisingly well. Totally impractical as a living space but I don't think that was the artist's main concern. I'd like to see it furnished because at the moment it looks a bit Hobbit'y.

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

    I can't get past the idea of what it would smell like. I hate rusty metallic smells.

    impressive. i think the transition from organic into something more gothic-like with the arched ceilings & the glass-in-lead windows is just wonderful. so cool.

    eta: and i love the smell & look of steel.

    Yeah, not sure i could live in it (furniture placement must be a bitch) but as a work of art it's insane in a good way

    those were my first thoughts about the place.

    my next thoughts were about how freaking hard it would be to wash the outsides of the windows!
