STEVE INSKEEP, host:

OK. And let's follow up on the old cliche, a man's home is his castle. You can make a castle your very own home, because our last word in business is $2.8 million. It's a number actually, but it's the asking price for a castle in West Virginia. A real castle built by an Italian stone mason during the Great Depression. For $2.8 million you can get your own turrets, your own parapets, you can get a Romanesque chapel and you can get 25,000 square feet of space, although you might want to ask about the heating bill.
