The Queen of Versailles..

17 Jul

I just saw this clip for this new Sundance awarded documentary chronicling the building of the largest house in America and the billionaire couple behind it. With the global recession hitting  all work on the house has stopped and now the couple need to sell it before its finished!! Its going to take another $30m to finish the house,  that’s quite the project to take on and it makes our home renovation seem tiny  by comparison!!!

The home has been modelled of the Versailles palace with a good amount of Vegas inspiration thrown in there too –  it screams excess in every way! What do you think  is building a home this big just a gaudy display of wealth or are they totally justified in building what they dream of?
