Welcome to Caveland.us

In a Nutshell…

Our story begins in December of 2003, when Curt found a cave while searching for commercial property in our area on Ebay.  That’s right, we found our cave on Ebay!  A couple of weeks later we visited, and fell in love with the place. 

It took us nearly five months to complete the purchase, and just over four years to build our offices and home here.  Throughout most of this time, we lived in a giant dehumidified tent inside the cave.

During that time, we did some of the work, and had help with a lot of it.  It all came down to time and money—we used whichever one we had.  We give our heartfelt gratitude to the many individuals who have helped us shape our dream.

On May 19th, 2008, the City of Festus approved our occupancy inspection for the cave.  Officially, this completed our project.  This is now where we live, work, raise our family and celebrate life!

If you’d like to know more, the pages on this website detail our project.  For the brief version, the main menu headers will lead you to overviews of each major aspect of our project.  The pages in the drop-down menus detail each step of the way.  You can also visit the photo gallery to see the project take shape.  We welcome your comments in the Caveland forum on JeffCoChat.com.  We hope you enjoy your virtual visit to our little corner of paradise!

Sincerely,
Curt and Deborah Sleeper
