What do two people do in a house this big? Play hide and seek all day?

There is a ramp to underground parking at this end.That must for the servants? Then there is an elevator from the basement to the top.

Bob,
Who you kidding. . . Those are shots of your new house that you're building with all the money you made from DECKS! ;-}

LOL Joe-If I had all the money in the world I wouldn't build a house this big.A 40'Tolley sportfish motor yacht maybe, and a nice little home on the water with my yacht parked out front so I could sneek down for a nap now and then.hehe

Good Idea! Stan- send me some cards and come and visit Washington for some R&R after the steps are installed of course.

bob.. just got a peek of the view in that last pic..must be quite spectacular to warrant this house...

Right on! Mike- Beautiful view looking out toward snow capped Mt. Baker and Lukaville. It sits on 27 acres so no one will build in front of them.

I wonder how this rage in super sized homes will fare the next few years? It gets kinda ridiculous how they build 'em bigger and bigger and only two people may live there. Some will only spend a month of the year in them. At least that's the way I see it in the McManshion neighborhood I work in.

Ten years ago 5,000 sf was considered huge. This link shows what the high end market looks like in my area and it's a county with a pop of 250K or so. These are homes/condos listed over $10M. I was trying to find Cal neighborhoods that exceeded what I saw here, and couldn't.

I'm sure Long Island and CT have some dense Mc neighborhoods?

I haven't looked at that site in some time, but I noticed one home is off the market that was listed at a shade above $10M. A builders spec home which I did all the hardwood installs. Last I heard they owed my mentor $30K on a $60K job.

That was back in June! The floors were finished in July. So where's the money? I got paid, but geeesh. That particular job can be found in the construction techniques archives under?? Oval or elliptic stair nosing....

It doesn't look like a money problem for the builder, but they did overdo the place with too many desecrator opinions and actions. I'm kinda green on spec homes and the place was delisted, yet the proud sign of the builder remains on the property.

Yea, they would have private showings on the weekends during the final construction process and didn't allow work on the weekends. I'm guessing it's been sold and the more I think about it, you don't see sale/sold signs on the front lawn in these neighborhoods.

Hey-

Where's the mote. This thing just won't do until the mote goes in. Yea, and a drawbridge...

We have one going in nearby that is 18,000 square feet.

I just rated a home for the energy star program that was 8,700 sf for a couple with 3 kids. The bonus room was larger than my house!

Bob, have them call me when the place can't be heated in the winter, or makes those giant icicles. Actually, they will probably wait until their artwork starts drying out in the winter, then they'll call.

I'll guess 11,400 CFM50

No wonder they're rationing wood to the rest of us.

Phil: We could still work in a curved stairway going up to a door to the attic? ha

..up to the customer's ego maybe, this is definitely a "mine-is-bigger-than-yours", kind of guy.
