I just spotted one of my cat designs on HGTV show Million Dollar Rooms a couple of weeks ago. It was an 85′ unit that the developer wouldn’t pay any more than $3K for the design of. It was a spare design of course. I didn’t want to leave him in lurch, but it was not a real design fee.
Next contact was when Charlie Munger bought it and dropped by to find out what he had just bought. Over the years I have met various people who worked on it, including naval architects in expensive offices.
Ironic that it is a million dollar room, but the proper design of the fundamentals was thought to be too expensive to be funded properly.
I could not find a link nor a picture.
