THE "STEEL HOUSE"
85 East Canyon View Drive, Ransom Canyon, TX, USA [Approximate]
Though crafted mainly in metal the building, with its flowing lines rather than a typical angular construction, also includes stained glass creations and other manifestations of Bruno's creative muse. The residence can really not be put into any defined architectural class though you could argue that if mankind ever masters travel to the stars he might well see a city somewhere around Alpha Centauri filled with Bruce like buildings.
At the time of his passing in 2008 Bruno had only very recently moved into the "Steel House" or, as it is often known locally the "Metal Mansion", which had been some 35 years in the making; a testament to the determination, commitment and passion the man felt for his labor of love. Asked about the move and its timing Bruno was reputed to have responded that it was simply that his lease was up on his previous residence and nothing to do with reaching a particular point in construction.
The book "Weird Texas: Your Travel Guide to Texas's Local Legends and Best Kept Secrets" by Wesley Treat, Heather Shades and Rob Riggs contains a section on Robert Bruno's creation and an excerpt from page 153 of the book can be found on Google Books.
There is much more to tell about the "Steel House" but it seems somehow more fitting to let the man himself do the telling so check out the video of Bruce talking about his masterpiece on the "Video" tab below.
