    This 90,000 sq ft. house, well along in construction, is also remarkable. Some people may find it hideous looking, too. Versailles in Florida: Construction Resumes on Biggest House in US - ABC News

    The 5 houses that would be larger are all museums now and not single-family, which would make this the largest single-family house.

    Also, you should watch the documentary on that house. They ran out of money the first time around with the recession. Looks like he made a lot of money back.

    I am currently in the garage designing and building trebuchets. Also recruiting knights and archers for a future "siege".

    I wonder how much live in and daily staff they will have? 24 hour security, I couldn't enjoy living in something that big.

    it will create jobs as having yard maintenance, security, maids, construction jobs, etc. Have you ever thought about the impact on the property tax(which I believe goes to Oklahoma County and please correct me if I'm wrong)? Not only is this going to put Edmond on the map(yet again), it will be known as just another slight, but somewhat significant, drawl and another destination. This is huge, imo. Having the largest single family home right here in OKC is amazing. I wouldn't care if this was being built in Norman, Newcastle, Yukon, or Guthrie(although I am glad it is being built in Edmond ), this is just awesome it is being built right here in the OKC metro area.

    To all the people saying that money could be better spent elsewhere, go out and make something of yourselves --walk the walk-- and when you get all that money, go right ahead and do what you please. I won't be mad at you because you choose to give it to parasites. If that is your will, then so be it. More power to you.

    Oh man, I could. It would be even better if they had someone design like 30,000 sf of hidden lairs throughout the house and never tell you about them and you could explore your own house and discover new rooms lol It'd be like cubed(hypercube). lol

    If I had that kind of money I would buy and refurbish an old missile silo. Put a Garden style house on top for entertaining and when you get tired of the world just button up for awhile.

    That'd be pretty cool. Have heard quite a bit of people have been doing that lately.

    So, the owner of this house owns one car lot on 240 and has this kind of money? Seems like a case of over compensation to me.... I mean, c'mon, what is he trying to prove? Or is this a national chain?

    Yes, he owns Key Auto Group. But he also owns the Express Credit Auto stores and the new Tio Chuy's Auto Sales in south OKC. Those are used car dealerships that specialize in high-interest car loans to people with poor to marginal credit.

    I'm sure he has more than that one business as already stated above me.

    I hope his lot will allow a good view of the house from the street. Too many attractive homes are blocked from public view by being situated on very wooded lots or acreages.

    Ummmmm.. if you're spending this kind of money and building it this far out, why would you want people to see it? I would want my house hidden and secluded, but still near the city.

    I don't know whether it'll be visible from the road or not but I tend to think you could at least see the spires. But I think if you're building the largest single family home in the country and it looks like a castle with a bunch of spires and a drawbridge, then you're building it for people to see. You're not building it to so no one but you sees it. You're building it to show off.

    Only going by personal preference, I ever got that rich and wanted to build something like that, it would be hidden. I would NOT want people to see it. However, if I had that big of a house, most of it would be labs and such.

    You know, if he just walled off the whole 100 acres and created a modern version of medieval walled village/city I would live in it.

    I deleted a bunch of posts that were personal and way off topic.

    This thread is about the proposed house, not class warfare. Thanks.

    Haha, now that would be cool. I would totally recreate one of the cities from Skyrim the video game!

    Now I underestand that note lots are high margin, but I still can't fathom the economics of this situation, does this guy rank as one of the richest people in OK? I've never even heard of this guy until now.

    Aside from the cost to build, the most intriguing thing to me will be the cost to maintain, and operate. How much electricity will he be pulling from the grid in the summer? Will this have an adverse affect on the grid in that area?

    The electric company is required by law to supply whatever electrical needs a residential home requires. That includes putting in new transmission lines with the cost be absorbed by all customers. However, what ever amount of electricity this place uses pales in comparison to a 300 unit subdivision.

    I'm hopeful that they only use top quality materials and craftsmen to build this thing. Megamansions like this have a habit of becoming museums after their original owners tire of them or die off.

    Done right, this could be a potential Philbrook type museum 100 or so years from now.
