Wooden walls and brass finishes: Inside the centerpiece home at the 1983 Indianapolis Home Show

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind -- Wood, wood and more wood. That was the material of choice for the centerpiece home at the 1983 Indianapolis Home Show.

The home was dubbed the most energy efficient in the history of the show.

Designed by Bradley Lewis, the home featured wood from the foundation to the ceiling with six-inch thick walls. Its layout utilized more space for living areas and less space for hallways. On paper, the home was 2,400 square feet, but Lewis said, "it lives a lot larger than that."

The price tag that year: $90,000.  

Get your fix of cedar and brass as former Channel 6 reporter Barbara Boyd takes you through the centerpiece home of the 61st annual Indianapolis Home Show in this RTV6 throwback.
