The Sleeper family of St. Louis are being told that they have to move out of their cave for failure to pay their loan. Curt Sleeper and his wife bought the former sand mine after a downpayment of half of the purchase price and a loan from the seller. They are now posting the cave on Ebay in the ultimate demonstration that the economy has reached every level of housing.
Picture of the cave show that this is not exactly a hermit’s hut. It sports 3 bedroom, 2 bath house with full city sewage and power. What is really cool is that when it rains, there are 14 interior waterfalls. There is also a shallow pond and a groundwater fed cistern that yields about 100 gallons per day.
