    I like it, it is brilliant however that dookie brown got to go! That color is killing the design! The Theater needs a lot of work and the interior design needs to go! You can not have a house designed like that and then have a crap color and crap interior design like that – it is like having sex in a warm cozy place in the dead of winter 10 below zero, then someone comes along and opens the doors and windows… Mood is KILLED with no sense of returning

    I love the way this was built but why would this cost 4 million? The whole point of shipping containers is to be cost effective
