That would be the walkout basement bar area subby. The living room has a vaulted ceiling.

If you pay $1.8m for that, you need your head checked.

Somewhere in that house there is a display cabinet filled with Precious Moments figurines. Only the rarest, limited edition ones, mind you, because it makes sense to diversify your portfolio by investing in art.

If it was built in 2011, why does the style and wood trim look like mid 90s?

The window/door-height proportion is twitch-worthy.

They're living in Missouri, which is a highly questionable decision to begin with.

$1.8 million to move to Missouri? Pass

The kitchen is the right size but good lord I hate those cabinets.

No amount of money will ever exist that you can give me so that I'll ever stop in Missouri for anything other than to pee.

By far one of the most hateful bigoted places I've had the displeasure to visit.  Among the many reasons I have for this opinion is people would follow my then 14yr old son son around stores calling him the n word (he has Hispanic features) and threatening to beat him up.

Even then, I try to pee in Oklahoma and drive straight through.

Stated as though that is even an option available to you.

That "lake" looked like shiat. Hard pass. Also because it's Missouri.

Sad thing is a lot of it is beautiful. Driving through blue eyes up to Branson across table rock is just fantastic. Same with Arkansas, taking 71 south through the state. Beautiful clear streams down through the ozarks... and horrible racist hillbillys.

Also, why is everything in that house done in an entirely different style than the other parts of the house? WTH.

And the little arched bridge is missing pieces.  Is that because it's falling apart or because they took them out when they realized is was a bit dangerous?

Stupid article is stupid.

Doesn't mention that the house sits on TWENTY FIVE acres of land.

That's why it's $1.8M.

"The house "was painstakingly engineered and constructed using only the finest materials""

Like an LG refrigerator.   Sub-zero is the bottom rung for a house at that price point.

They started building it in the 90's and finished it in 20 years later?

I've driven 71 many times from KC to Fayetteville and back and I agree with you 100%. That is a very beautiful part of the country filled with some of the worst human beings on the planet.

Not all people in that area, mind you. "Filled" is too strong a term. I've met some very nice, kind hearted people along that stretch of highway. But I've also met people who have never stopped fighting the Civil War.

The most beautiful areas of Missouri are the ones I avoid the hardest, it's either the most bigoted deep red or overdeveloped "quaint" tourist trap.

No, the water makes it 1.8.

My mother has 25 acres of woods, and isn't even worth half a million. And she has buildings to prop up that value.

People pay for water.

Except for the compromise of living in a state where your basic rights are being continually eaten away by the GQP.

Is that actually a drop ceiling, or is it just textured to make it look like a drop ceiling? In either case, why?

Based on the angle of those pictures, it's sized for someone 9 feet tall.  No thank you.

It's Missouri, so liberal or not the women there still don't have basic human rights. I suppose if your rights aren't worth much to you, though, then it's a steal.

Might be earlier. I had a house in Lubbock built in '87 that had that crap and God knows Lubbock isn't leading any trends.

Even if it weren't in Missouri, I'd have to spend more than the cost of the house to remodel that mess. Ugh.

Yeah, Columbia is actually a pretty cool college town and one of the only areas of the state that doesn't suck and isn't KC or STL.

Columbia is where the University of Missouri is so it isn't completely in the middle of nowhere.

Why would the builder do that? Why?


'splain please?
I see the window & door frame moldings don't line up, which seems a detail missed, but I suspect you're referring to something else.

There are other things which leaves "a level of craftsmanship that is rarely seen in this day and age" open to interpretation;
"you will rarely find this much money thrown at a Lowes contractor".
i.e. those frame moldings and drop-ceiling tiles are generic stock.
Final note: that lake water does not look right.
