Harmony Club

More jealous-making home photos from Thursday's New York Times: In 2000, industrial designer David Hurlbut bought the 20,000 square-foot Harmony Club – an abandoned Selma, Alabama social club built by Jewish businessmen in 1909, boarded up and abandoned since 1960 – for just under $100,000.

"'For 40 years,'" Hurlbut says, "'this place was a glorious pigeon coop and rat motel.'" Ten years, a ton of work, and around $150k later, it's his glorious and gigantic home.

Read about it, see a slideshow, and dream big here.
