The Joys of Really, Really Big Houses

Posted by: Peter Coy on April 17, 2007

A day after writing about the joys of small houses, I came across the real estate ad for a house in Aspen, Colo., that’s being sold by a Saudi prince for $135 million. Here’s what it looks like. I find it oddly similar to the small house I featured in my previous post.

Here’s a link to the ad, just in case you aren’t persuaded that living small is good for the planet. (And, of course, you happen to have a spare $135 million.)

You people to not even know what you are talking about. Even though my house is WAY bigger it does not matter because we are all the people matter how rich we all are so do not brag even if your house is bigger because mine is too. So you all git it? HOW CARES if your house is bigger. Even though my house is bigger I like this house it have a lot of windows and a lot of open room to live in! It is pretty!! Be nice, we do not care how much your house is!! =)

cantfaze

October 18, 2009 3:45 AM

everyone on here is saying that this is a small house and theirs is bigger and 90% of them are probly lying. and another point id like to make is its not how big the house is, its how well it was built..do u want huge house and all the plumbing and electrical is a mess and leaks or burns? no, what makes a nice house is the products you use and whos building it..
