Recently we reported that the Sleeper family of Festus, Missouri was forced to put their 17,000 square foot cave home up for sale. Today, however, we learn that thanks to the generosity of a New Jersey man, Curt Sleeper and his family have obtained a new mortgage that will allow them to stay and complete their dream home.

The 15-year loan comes from Jon Demarest, via his document and image management servicing company, Logical Source Inc. I had a chance to talk to Demarest today. He told me that he saw the story initially on Yahoo, and when he saw it again on a Sunday morning show, he was "intrigued by how it looked. I own several vacation homes, and I initially thought about buying the cave home as a summer getaway with the kids."
