Forget McMansion; Wisconsin Couple Builds Castle
LINDA WERTHEIMER, host:
Many people are scaling back these days, but not Dale and Terri Roznik. Our last word in business today is, a man's home is his castle - or we should say, a Wisconsin couple's home really is their castle.
Mr. DALE ROZNIK: A lot of people, you tell them you're building a castle, and they say everybody says that. It's a house, it's a castle. But no, this is a castle.
WERTHEIMER: The couple was inspired while on a trip to Germany six years ago. After a few zoning fights, construction started last year. The exterior is made of 400 tons of individually cut stone. There are 12 rooms, four bathrooms, five furnaces and to top it off, four towers. No moat and no dungeon, but hey.
That's the business news on MORNING EDITION from NPR News. I'm Linda Wertheimer.
