An Underground Discovery You Don’t Want to Miss
What if I told you this crazy cool cave home was located in the heart of the USA, and in a state you might not have guessed! Nestled inside of a sandstone cave in Festus, Missouri, this delightful home is a truly unique way of living, that’s both inspirational and energy efficient. Here we have a photo gallery for you to peruse that includes not only the final result, but also construction images as well. Enjoy!
Our story begins in December of 2003, when Curt found a cave while searching for commercial property in our area on Ebay. That’s right, we found our cave on Ebay! A couple of weeks later we visited, and fell in love with the place.
It took us nearly five months to complete the purchase, and just over four years to build our offices and home here. Throughout most of this time, we lived in a giant dehumidified tent inside the cave.
During that time, we did some of the work, and had help with a lot of it. It all came down to time and money—we used whichever one we had. We give our heartfelt gratitude to the many individuals who have helped us shape our dream.
On May 19th, 2008, the City of Festus approved our occupancy inspection for the cave. Officially, this completed our project. This is now where we live, work, raise our family and celebrate life!
