Where Have You Been Living.... In a Cave? - Yep!


FESTUS, Mo. - A Missouri family says the credit crunch
has forced them to put up for sale the 17,000-square-foot
home they created in a cave. Curt Sleeper told the St.
Louis Post-Dispatch he and his family, like so many others,
are victims of the credit crunch. He has been unable to
obtain mortgage refinancing for the cave. "We don't want
to move," he said. "But we need to protect our equity. We
put everything we had into this home." So the Sleepers
have listed the cave on eBay. The couple, who have two
children and are expecting a third, bought the cave, a
former mine, five years ago. In the late 1950s, it had
been converted to a roller rink and night club called
Caveland, where Tina Turner and other major stars played.
The Sleepers lived in tents for several years while they
worked on the cave, calling their temporary quarters
Tentworld. The family says the cave in Festus, about
30 miles south of St. Louis, is peaceful, considering
that it is only a few hundred feet from major highways
and below a subdivision. It is located in a small box
canyon with a bog and an assortment of wildlife.
