Reader: Who says the Sleeper House can't be both pretty and a little ugly?

Our defense of the Sleeper House after the I-70 landmark was listed as one of the nation's ugliest mansions has traveled far and wide over the past few days, and stirred readers to share their opinions about the unique abode. Here's a post from someone who can see the argument from both sides.

Molly Buchan writes:

I grew up hearing this house referred to as the Clamshell. Then I heard it called the Spaceship House. Then I heard it's "official" name was The Sculptured House. Now it's the Sleeper house? I can't keep up with all the names for this thing, but it is pretty from I-70, especially at night when it's all lit up. It's always seemed to be more of an architectural experiment than an actual functioning home, though. I think it should be allowed to be a little ugly.
