ADVANCE FOR WEEKEND USE JULY 15, 2017 AND THEREAFTER - In this Thursday, July 6, 2017 photo, Mark Choate rides the elevator of his new house with his dog, Obi Wan Kenobi, in Juneau, Alaska. Choate said "My idea was to build a house that will last 1,000 years," After eight years and several million dollars, he may have just that. The secret passageway, elevator, wine cellar, and tower-top study are added bonuses. "This is a commitment to Juneau, a commitment to the community for longevity. Juneau's a place you can plan to live generations in," he said. "For this amount of money, we could've built anywhere in the world, but we wanted to be here." (James Brooks/The Juneau Empire via AP)
