Wisconsin Man has custom home built for Indiana Jones Collection

It must be nice to have this much money to devote to your hobby. A man in Wisconsin who has been collecting Indiana Jones memorabilia for more than 35 years had a custom home built to house all of his items.

Michael Miller, age 49, says he started collecting at age 14, and his first item was the collector’s edition VHS of Raiders of the Lost Ark. Then three decades later he had a custom home built in Wilson, Sheboygan County, to hold all the treasures he’s collected.

The home’s Indiana Jones room features a 19-foot ceiling, special stud work for stability, custom-made curio cabinets and special environmental controls for temperature and humidity. He says his collection is dedicated to actor Harrison Ford, and that he won’t collect any items for future Indiana Jones films unless Ford is involved.
