When completed in approximately 2015, it will have nine kitchens, 30 bathrooms, two movie theaters, a baseball field, and a bowling alley just to name some of the features.




Again, for most families the largest home really needed is between 2,000-3,000 square feet.  Anything more just cost a lot of money to maintain areas that are never used!

Hi Jay & Michelle,

I had an open house at a large listing and got the comment, "I wouldn't want to clean this much house."  It was no where near the size of these.

Michelle and Jay, We used to say "Every thing's bigger in Texas." I guess that's not true when it comes to mega-homes.
