Maybe he will be moving in with Derek?

He's definitely a super hero geek.

Since he's in the process of populating California, he probably needs a bigger pad! :)

Good luck with that. Not sure how many people in Bakersfield are looking at $2.8 million homes.

I'll say this. It's actually a very nice looking house. If I made his kind of money (when he made that kind of money) that's the size of house I would look for. Not those big mansions that probably have "you are here" maps all over them out of necessity.

BUUuuuUUT.....good luck getting the 2.8, dude.

How is that a "Star Trek" theater? Shrek theater, OK. Star Wars theater, OK.

I think the theater might be designed to feel like the bridge of a ship on Star Trek (original series). Maybe, not sure, but that's the only thing I can think of when looking at it and thinking Star Trek.

Is this really a "mansion"? 6 bedrooms is a big house, but I've always thought mansions were more like River Oaks. Massive houses with wings and dozens of bedrooms and a kitchen with more square feet than the average U.S. house and even a small house in the back for guests or hired help.

This is definitely a nice house, but I just don't get the mansion-vibe when looking at the pictures of it.

David's brother used to post here under the name hulk75...seems they have a cartoon fetish. Obviously the smaller spidey on the left is David.

That's funny, man. :heh:

Was QB75 Derek Carr? I know it was one of the Carr boys, but I don't remember if it was specifically Derek.

You'd be surprised - a lot of them don't have as many bedrooms as you think. I know a guy out in Beaumont who built a 22,000 sq. ft. house and it "only" had 5-6 bedrooms. It's all the extras. Carr has a 10 car garage. This guy has a full size indoor basketball court.

I think it was. His older brother (hulk75) was the UofH player...and thin skinned Brother lover. :pop:

If it was, then he had a hell of a vocabulary for a 9th or 10th grader.

I always thought QB75 was the old man.

Ahhh, great point. I never thought about bedroom size. Those things could be massive. Any idea of how many square feet isin Carr's house?

I just re-read the article and saw the mention of 10 car garage the second time around. Holy moly.

Not long after college, one of my buddies from pit crewing and racing who had gone to work for Ford on engine development bought a house. 1600 sq. ft. house with a 2500 sq. ft. climate controlled garage. I laughed my ass off. He still can't fit all his cars and motorcycles in it much less the tow vehicles and trailers.

Wow. That's like four of my houses.

But, at that price, I could buy my entire cul-de-sac! hmmm....probably buy half my street, too. Which would be kinda' cool. :thinking:

Or maybe not. Not much demand for pricy housing in a state where Tax Flight is well under way. The rich can vote with their feet.

Thank you Jerry Brown.

Keep trotting that canard out. CA gained over 330k last year - highest growth rate in a decade.

Lol. Dude, it's California. A lot of people still want to live there. He'll get that price.

Hell, my house here in Houston has nearly doubled in price. And Texas isn't as in-demand in terms of quality of life as California.

Slightly faster than the state overall.

It isn't an aberration. The population growth rate has slowed as in less positive. It has not been negative recently.

Bakersfield isn't as glamorous as the coast, but $2.8 million for that house in California is reasonable. He'll get it.

Have any y'all been to Bakersfield??

Seriously, have you??

It's what, about halfway between LA and Frisco. It's where "Any Which but Loose" and "Any Way you Can" were filmed....


Bakersfield, (while there is a girl I love) is a similarly to a West Texas Town I know really well!!

I actually love it!!!

Come back to H-Town SOON!!!
