Here's "who said what" in Dallas Innovates Every Day.He’s not afraid of color. And he positively loves a sense of fun. Those attributes landed Bradley’s Fort Worth home in a special place of honor: a viral tweet by Zillow Gone Wild.

Bradley’s 7,000-square-foot house at 1809 Carl St.—currently listed at $745,000—features an indoor heated pool with a slide surrounded by artificial turf. An adjacent billiards lounge and family entertainment area promise more fun nearby. And did we mention the pingpong and air hockey tables?

“I’ve always told everybody that I didn’t look at this as a remodel. I look at this as a work of art, that’s the truth,” Bradley told the DMN’s Mitchell Parton. “The children love it. This house has as many amenities as any house you’re ever going to see.”

Bradley—described by his real estate agent to DMN as “your quintessential eclectic Fort Worth cowboy”—said he got most of the materials for the house at Habitat for Humanity
