I had the opportunity to meet and talk with Mr. Morgan and his lovely wife last summer. We live in Atlantic Beach and had long heard about William Morgan and had seen his incredible homes peppering our community. We love the dune house. We call it the 'Teletubby House' as it looks like it from the road!

It would certainly be very wonderful if somehow a private buyer would, in fact, keep it as is. Maybe using it as a bed and breakfast?....Wouldn't it be cool to stay in an underground, oceanfront home on your vacation?

I love when they are crammed in the stolen Lola or McLaren screaming through the countryside.
The images that are shown to him when his eyes are propped up will give you nightmares.
I TIVO'd it a couple years back and played them at half speed (shudder) and it made me cringe.
