Back in 2009 I wrote about one of my fantasies (one of the ones I'll admit to, anyhow) - my desire to live in a Really Big House. You can read that post here if you missed it at the time.
I hadn't thought much about my Really Big House fantasy for a while until yesterday morning when, on the way home from taking our granddaughters to their swimming lesson, our daughter decided to show us a model home in a community she and her husband had visited ...
The last time I saw a house that big, it was occupied by someone whose first name was Your Majesty. The photo in no way illustrates just how big this house is. It was so big it had its own zip code and distorted gravity in its vicinity. Here's a link to the floor plan.
I still dream of living in a Really Big House, but I have to ask myself: who really needs a 6,000 square foot house with as many as seven bedrooms and six-and-a-half baths? Not too many young people with large families can afford a house with a starting price of over 3/4 of a million dollars. A house with a price tag like this is probably more in the mortgage range of someone who can buy an election.
But if you decide to buy this house, let me know. I'll rent part of it from you.
And trust me ... you'll never know I'm there.
Have a good day. Live large ... so to speak. More thoughts tomorrow.
