If you were given the money to build a house of your choice, but was limited on funds to only 10 million, what would you have built?

Me - I'd build purchase 50 acres of land in New Mexico (Suburbian area, it's cheep) - Then have the area fenced off, have a good sized (4 acre) 2 story house with basement built deep into the property. From there, just do a little landscaping and you can have a large green lawn with bushes and trees as you see fit.

With the remainder of the money, use it to hire staff for the house

Limited to 10 million? Dear god, that's a lot of money to make a house.

I guess if I had that much money to burn, I'd go for a technologically advanced house rather than simply a really, really big one. The cost of making the house at least carbon-neutral would be no problem, so I'd have it designed to use solar energy and good architecture to limit the amount of energy needed to warm/cool/power/etc the house.

I could just build over a geothermal vent in Iceland; I hear that's a cool place to live, and that'd take care of energy needs rather nicely.

Hmm, im more of an old fashioned person myself. I would use the money to hire more maids, and get myself a large mansion, or maybe a castle Very Happy

You say that now ... *shakes head*

I always thought it would be nice to have a cabin out in the middle of a swamp, completely energy-self-sufficient, NO ZONING CODES!, tin roof (the sound of rain on a tin roof on a weekend morning == perfect for rolling over and doing nothing, until the roof starts leaking anyway)

The rest of the money after materials, transport, and construction, can go into the custom security/entertainment system. Trespassers will be violated.

I see what you did there Shocked

Yeah, I've also never seen the purpose of any house bigger than, say, a 4 bedroom house unless you have an abnormally large family.

States, even you would have trouble going through all those hookers. I'd go for a few floors of an NYC apartment building, all the toys I want, and save 2m for me to invest and live off of.

It has it's advantages, just as warm places have their disadvantages. In cold weather you can add more clothing, in hot humid weather there's only so much good the opposite can do when the air conditioning breaks down. Suspect

I would buy a nice Victorian house in San Fransisco, Nicely placed to all the areas of import.

The rest of the money I would buy various entertainment stuff, maybe a staff, and invest some money so I can keep collecting it over the years.

Kuros, I love your avatar! Go Elfen Lied!

Now, about that house.. I'd probably go for a smaller house because I get paranoid in very big ones. Most of the money would be spent on technology for the house. You know, a fairly decent sized plasma screen, all 3 game consoles and all the best games for each one according to my taste. A normal sized refrigerator but a big kitchen Very Happy With another TV there, too. I'd have a custom computer with the fastest internet available and all the most powerful parts on the market. I'd definitely have a nice jacuzzi.. I don't care for pools too much, though. I'd have a tennis court built. A temperpedic bed, the highest quality on the line. I'd have all dark polished wood furniture, with lighter wood flooring and beige walls. Carpet on the second floor! Gosh, you guys make me dream of things I can never have Sad

I'd invest the remaining money in stocks.. By the way, this house would be in a well-populated city in New Zealand <3

okay, rooms on top, rationalizations below

I'd immediately put 5M in the bank to generate an extra $5,000 a week, and build a large house, you know, 2 bedrooms: 2 1/2 bathrooms A large living room, a fully equipped kitchen, Indoor- Olympic sized pool, Computer room equipped with three top-of-the-line computers and T3 Internet connection. The entire roof would be covered in solar panels, a small, 2 car garage, and a basement with a weight-training kit, and a Library with around 8,000 books, decorated with dragon paraphernalia and swords.

Bedrooms: One for me, one for guests, I never plan on having kids, can't stand them
Bathrooms: 1/2 for one of those bathrooms without a shower/tub, and always good to have more than one fully equipped bathroom
Living room: Large area for recreation, with a television, sofa, Ps2 (ps3's arent as good as everyone says) Xbox-360 etc. etc.
Kitchen: I love cooking. I want to get a kitchen like one of the kitchens those nice sit-in restaurants have
Pool: I'm a swimmer, I do laps, and enjoy the exercise (Plus, I'd be able to stay in good shape)
Comp. Room: What can I say, I'm a sucker for fast computers and internet >.<
Solar panels: Big house, lots of solar panel space- immensely lower energy bill, possibly even a negative energy bill
2 car garage: I do enjoy having a nice car, but thats it, ONE nice car, the second space would be used for storage >.<
Library w/ dragon stuff: I love reading, and I LOVE dragons Razz

(this would all still only equal about 4.4 million dollars, I checked >.< yes, I do need a beter output of my time)
