Our house is based off an old octagon barn that we saw in a book of old barns. As you can see it has a large cupola to add natural light into the house. We put a gambrel roof on the house to allow for a vaulted ceiling on the inside of the house. We spent about a year traveling down to Missouri on the weekends building the house with our own hands. As with any house it is always a work in progress but we have been living in it since 2006.
Our house is so unique that the Air Force near St. Joseph, MO uses our house as a landmark when they are doing routine flights. It can be quite a sight seeing large military cargo planes flying so low to Heaven On Earth. Sometimes we think it is so the pilots can look at our Texas Longhorns.
If you are ever in the northwest Missouri area please feel free to stop by and take a look inside.
