Monster House: Shark House
I was very interested to see this one, because we were told last summer that Discovery wanted a shark house for shark week. It would have been ours, but they couldn't do the work soon enough to make the deadline. The whole coral-reef foam living room was exactly what I thought we'd get, what I'd hoped for, and what I expected to see at our reveal. After seeing the shark house, I think I'm relieved we didn't get it. Colorful and beautiful, and perfect for someone else's livingroom! I was also interested in their fish tank, because I'd heard through the MH grapevine they'd hoped to do a real shark tank. You need like 1000 gallon tank for that! No way could they saddle an unsuspecting person with the maintenance cost for 1000 gallon tank (a rule of thumb--at least in Malibu--is $1/gallon/month for weekly professional maintenance). I was laughing to see they'd ended up with a 125 freshwater instead. That's quite a bit more practical.
