“Even when you're inside this house on a dull rainy day you're still picking up all of this color and it just comes alive,” said Gorder. 

Buzz and his wife Pam call the home “The Aqua Star." It features 15-foot ceilings and some very brightly colored art that’s displayed through the house.

The couple is selling the home so they can be closer to their daughter, who is pregnant with their first grandchild.

“The Aqua Star” has also been featured in movies and on the television show, Portlandia.
