One man has turned his home into a treasure of modern architecture. The home has won countless awards and has been featured on two shows on HGTV. We are taking a look inside the house that is now for sale.
" Because we are in the ten acres of the Nebraska prairie land, he wanted this to feel like an old, tractor that's out in the midst of the elements," Realtor Karen Jennings said.
Every detail is intentional, including this roll-up door. "And when I'm finished, I lift it up," Jennings said.
The home is said to be more than just a home. " Basically, it makes you think of architecture in a different way. Randy Brown's idea of a home is so different from what we normally see in the Omaha real estate market," Jennings said.
Karen Jennings is Brown's realtor and gave a tour of the house that is for sale. It features a concrete floor with radiant heat, meaning there is an underground source pushing heat into the home. " It's supposed to be made out of natural elements. There's no synthetic products that are used in this home. It's more of a green home," Jennings said.
Brown also taught his architecture students in the home. "He would take students would come out and he would help teach them about architecture and they would actually help with the building process. They are kind of like pocket doors. All of his students helped make these flats for these interesting architecture features," Jennings said.
"It is fully immersed in the trees -- so that every window, every aspect of the house is seeing nature," Jennings said.
The house is listed at $995,000.
