Ten minutes outside of the city limits, I arrived at the home of Mary Kalantzis and Bill Cope. Mary, the dean of the University of Illinois College of Education and Bill, the president of Common Ground Publishing and a UI education professor, have created a haven that The News-Gazette referred to as "The Glass House On The Prairie."
Please pop over and read that feature. You will read all about this home's indoor pool, geothermal heating and cooling, solar panels, limestone floors, original artwork, unique light fixtures, rooftop garden and the award winning "meditation hut."
Now, for the eye candy.
