    I love big houses just as much as I love cars. Who on here has a mansion? I don't right now but I will. Please share some pictures as well!

    I'm just the opposite. I'm all about small houses.

    • Less of a stress on the earth
    • Less to clean
    • We are all in the same room 95% of the time anyway
    • More money to make the home beautiful and well crafted
    • More money for Investments
    • Did I mention less to clean?

    For me, it is bye bye McMansion - Hello quality of life.

    Our house is 2,760 square feet
    and that's plenty big enough for the two of us.

    The hubby likes mansions
    (his uncle has one,
    he drives a golf cart around the basement).
    I like small English cottages (cozy and less stuff).
    We split it down the middle and got a 4 bedroom.

    Any bigger and we'd have a maid
    (actually we should probably have one now
    - the hubby cleans the house about twice a year).

    We just got the plans completed for our new house. It is 2040 SF.... slightly bigger then I wanted, but it'll do. I'm actually pretty excited about the plan.

    Hubby wanted more.... maybe about 2700 SF. I wanted about 1500. So 2k works.

    My reasoning for why I like mansions is this:

    I have somewhat of a riches to rags (and soon back to riches) story. Up till I was about 5 I lived in a 10,000 sq foot home. It seemed so big to me I would ride my bike in the living room! But then things became tough and we well became "poor". So from after 5 to the end of high school I lived in a VERY small house. When I am able to I want the largest house and yard I can afford.

    Maybe something like this:

    Nah that's too small for me.

    I don't have a house that is worthy of the mansion category. I do have a picture of one of my properties that will help me get one someday though.

    This is the house we are building - though it won't be shingles. It will be reclaimed lumber. We broke ground last week. :banana::jiggy::cheers:

    And you thought Peter was screwing around when he said to that banned user "You're raving about $3,200/mo? That wouldn't pay for my electric bill!"

    I remember that asshat from the RDPD forums. Too bad we're all "sheeple" who didn't understand what he was talking about......

    Yikes, even *he* didn't understand what he was talking about . . .

    Someone needed to define "passive income" for him.

    He was the most agressive passive investor I've ever met! :coco:

    I can definitely appreciate that
    and I'm content to listen to his "general" advice
    (and happy for the cat pics, of course,
    nothing is so bad that a cute photo of kitten can't fix).

    Fair enough. I can respect that. Perhaps we can get him to divulge some details without giving away what industries and products etc.

    ahh too bad... I was just calling the shipping company to take my jet ski to his house... too much water around :)

    Back on topic, my 'ideal mansion' has a lot of land as I will have a lake (jet ski needs water), a go-kart track and some running area... about the soccer field I'm not so sure yet...

    My ideal mansion is what my uncle has. 3500 sq. foot house on 40 acres that has city owned open space (several thousand acres) on one side and some sort of park land on the other(several square miles). He has his own solar panels and will be installing a wind turbine soon to be entirely independent of the electric grid when need be.

    That Miami house would bother me, being that close to such a highly industrial port. (zoom out and you'll see what I mean).

    That's Star Island. Probably Tiger Woods house or something.
