What's so extreme? The house, built mostly of brick and stone, has a great room that's 3,700 square feet.
The home was built a few years back in Waimea on the Big Island for former Honolulu advertising executive Sandy Sims using designs that America's most famous architect drew up when he was in the 80s but never saw constructed.
Sims acquired the rights to the plans from the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, which says it will not allow the same design to be built again. The show airs at 8 p.m. Wednesday on Oceanic Channel 38.

Royal bonus on DVD
"Snow White" was America's groundbreaking cartoon film, launching a wave of fairy tales-turned-movies. Its numerous distinctions include being the first full-length animated feature, the first to be included in the prestigious U.S. National Film Registry and the first animated film to win an honorary Oscar (to Walt Disney in 1938), with miniature statuettes awarded to each of seven dwarfs.
The DVD could emerge as the fairest of them all, too, since it will offer a historical glimpse of hosts over the decades: Roy Disney (the '30s), Angela Lansbury (the '40s), Fess Parker (the '50s), Robby Benson (the '60s), Dean Jones (the '70s), Jodi Benson (the '80s) and Ming-Na (the '90s). D.B. Sweeney plays host.
