As a huge fan of shows on HGTV and the DIY Network – like Yard Crashers, Rehab Addict and Property Brothers, among others – I’m always game to check out a home’s cool new renovations. That goes quadruple for people who deck their house out in crazy themes for their favorite movies or TV shows, because that stuff is insane, and I’d never have the balls to actually follow through with turning my house into a tribute to Big Trouble in Little China, mainly because I can’t grow Jack Burton’s bitchin’ facial hair.
But veteran Colorado builder Steve Nighteagle lives by a stronger code. He won’t live in an ordinary home, because he refuses to have the same kind of stuff that us normal schmucks have. So he took the IKEA crap to the curb and turned his entire home’s front room into a replica of the U.S.S. Enterprise from Star Trek. And he’s hardly done.
“I disliked my life in the past, the now is OK! Star Trek gives me the way to escape from those areas,” Steve explains his decision to use the Star Trek theme as design inspiration for his house.
“I still have 4 rooms that I can create this 23rd Century look,” he said in an interview. “I believe that if you have a theme for living quarters, you lose the effect if you don’t completely do the entire house! It would be incomplete for me!” (Via Oddity Central)
As long as he calls the bathroom the “Holodecker”, I have absolutely no problem with this.
