A man's home is his cave?

You've heard of a homeowner being underwater -- but how about underground?

Curt and Deborah Sleeper want to sell their underground house.

The home is built inside a cave in suburban St. Louis.

Of course, an underwater home refers to house that's now worth less than its outstanding mortgage.

The Sleepers have put their three-bedroom cave home up for auction on eBay.

Bidding starts at $300,000.

The Sleepers say they have a big balloon payment due and they haven't been able to arrange new financing.

They add they might not sell if they're able to get a new loan for their cave.
