Idea Home at Great Big Home And Garden Show Cleveland


Idea Home - You will be able to tour an actual 3350 square foot home that will give you some great ideas for your very own home. There are some interesting design features as well as many "green" elements to this home.  Some of the features of this $1,000,000 home include: two waterfalls, an elevator, three fireplaces, a billiards room and entertainment center.

The major "green" components to this home include: a wind turbine that powers the entire home by wind, solar-powered air conditioner, and flat green roof from which barrels will collect rain water.

The outdoor of this incredible home will include: a cedar swing set, complete with a rock wall, tire swing and slide, in-ground swimming pool complete with a cabana and outdoor kitchen, half-court basketball court, and incredible landscaping.


New Man Cave - There will be a 1000 square foot basement that will be the envy of every man in Cleveland, but you have to promise your wife that you won't spend all day here. This specially designed basement will feature a game room, complete with poker table and fireplace, designer bar, home theater room complete with seating and TV , an office and luxury bathroom. There will also be an outdoor area complete with a fountain and fire pit.

Cindy "in Indy" - We are looking forward to the show. The idea home will be neat, plus we always walk away from these shows with some ideas for our own home.

Mike - I will be spending a lot of time at the man cave. If they are showing a movie I like, I may stay there all day. Thanks for commenting.

GOOD MORNING DAN!   What a neat show - Tucson's home show isn't nearly this exciting!  I always love these but tend to come home with a laundry list of changes for my husband! -- G
