    Is it a complete sentence?

    This house, made of glass and still on the drawing board, and it could be yours for close to 60 million US dollars.

    Dear all,

    Is it a complete sentence?
    It seems to be a little odd to me.

    Thanks in advance.

    ***NOT A TEACHER***Eartha, good morning. (1) You are 100% correct. The sentence is very "odd. (2) It says the house is MADE of glass, but then it says the house is still on the DRAWING BOARD -- which means it has NOT been built yet!!! (3) But the biggest problem is that the writer has tried to make two sentences out of one sentence by using "and." So let's change it to something like: This house could be yours for about 60 million US dollars. (Don't use "and it.") Thank you.
