    Dude, that's awesome. I completely agree on your classifications.

    The only problem I see with building "super mansions" is that if you die or decide to move out, who's gonna be able to buy your place?? Only a small percentage of rich people even could.

    thanks, i'm glad you agree.

    Yeah, I agree with you. its not very wise to build a home that large. if you decide that you don't like it anymore, you are going to have a very hard time trying to find a buyer. if you can't find a buyer, then thats tens of millions of dollars down the drain.

    Man, it's kind of ridiculous when you think about the size of the Super Mansions. I couldn't fathom what it's like to live in a 50,000 or God forbid a 88,000 square foot house. 25,000 is as large as I would go, and that's with a 20 car garage.

  4. Kenny Says:

    I agree, It is very ridiculous when you think about it. Could you imagine the upkeep of a 50,000 square foot house would be. The taxes? jeeez. I hope that one day I can have enough money to live in a 30,000 square foot house and not even have to worry about the cost of upkeep. Most of these people build these large homes that drain out most of their net worth. I would only build a 30,000 square foot house If I had a net worth of over $75 million.

  5. Chance Says:

    Yep, and another thing is that at a certain point it's like living in a warehouse. Remember 50 Cents house when it was on MTV Cribs, it was like a giant cavern, all cold and voluminous, it had nice features but it was way to much.

    I personally think it doesn't matter how big the actual number is, but the layout of the interior. This site has showcased 20000 sq ft homes that seem terribly monstrous while I've seen interiors of homes triple that size, and believe it or not they are quite livable. Scale and proportions are what make the home, and a skilled architect will be able to maintain a scale where it still feels like a livable home, albeit a huge one.

    How about some addresses of these homes so we can check them out on google maps.
