  1. I have come upon the delightful cow house while walking around, and don’t understand why you would brand it as you did in your headline – “is this the home of someone’s dreams… or nightmares?” The house is surreal, but surreal is not the same as nightmarish. Someone obviously put a lot of effort and love into this unusual home, and I’m sorry to see that you that you guys didn’t get that.

  2. Does the house really sag like that in the middle? And, I agree with Barbara, that it isn’t really nightmarish, although those monkeys on the roof are a bit disturbing.
