Flooring in the utility room was left over from when Millstein built the Free State Brewery in Lawrence. "These things have kind of been accumulated over the years with nothing really in mind other than, 'Wow, 10 cents a foot. Yeah, I should buy that.' We've been moving this stone around since 1985." Building the house proved to be a bureaucratic challenge. It took Millstein eight months to get a The south wall of the house and the second-floor hub that serves as the master bedroom are of conventional stick-frame construction, but the roof is as unique as the used tire wall. "They made concrete boats when they ran out of steel in World War I. They called them Liberty Boats. This is essentially the same technology they used back in 1917," he explained. Three layers of wire mesh were topped with rebar set on 3-inch centers, covered with three more layers of mesh. The structure was tied together with steel wire on 6- inch centers. "So there's like 20,000 little ties holding this thing together." After the underside of the roof was stuccoed and it hardened, concrete was poured from atop and smoothed. "Concrete and steel when in close proximity to each other, they share properties," explained Millstein. He said he "flunked out of architecture school in the early '60s, so I'm a frustrated architect, I guess, but not too frustrated." Millstein isn't frustrated because he has made his mark in Lawrence architecture by refurbishing some of its older downtown landmarks, including Liberty Hall, which he co-owns. Recycling didn't stop with the exterior of Millstein's house. The floor of the foyer came from the old handball courts in Robinson Gymnasium at the University of Kansas. Most of the doors were made from floor joists from the Johnson County Courthouse in Olathe. Flooring in another room came from a dance studio over Quinton's Bar and Grill in Lawrence. The cypress in the windows was salvaged from old barns in Kansas City, Mo. Marble flooring in a hallway was once the toilet stall dividers in the now razed St. Mary Hospi- The Associated Press Millstein are portholes purchased building permit because the Douglas County inspector simply had no frame of reference for the unique architecture and construction methods. No bank would give the Mill- steins a construction loan. But now that it's finished, Millstein has no regrets in how he built his family's home. "Most everything you see is recycled. I think that's the theme of the house." Spruce up with creativity CHRIS CASSON MADDEN Scripps Honwd News Service Is money tight?
