Has anybody been here? It's becoming more and more of a tourist attraction. The older I get, the tighter I hang onto those guard rails. Enjoy;

The man who built that thing is certifiably insane.

I've been there a few times, and I still can't beleive he's done it all by hand.

He seems fairly crazy to me. He had a sign up that said, "No taxpaying Drunks", so I had to go.

Great pictures, thanks.

What a fantastic, TRUE American!! He knows what this country is supposed to be. The rest of us have no rights left to us that our great country was founded upon. God bless him, and everyone who has the courage to do the same.

I have been there a few times and have some great pics as well.

The guy has been thru the ringer with the fed and state govermenst, and unless you want to spend an entire afternoon listening to him rant about the things they've done to him...... don't say hi.

The place is absolutely amazing..... and spooky..... and not for the "scared of heights" folks out there.

I wonder if he got a building permit and has had his inspections. Gotta admit, he's a free spirit, for sure.
