If my house can be two bedrooms and a living room in 1500 sqft, I'd be happy. French architecture - I have found - is so much different than American architecture. It's really difficult to gauge. I probably would build a basement to store things and possibly put a library down there to save...

Just because the pictures are of large homes doesn't necessarily mean I want it at that scale. I am just curious as to why you say 3000 sqft home.. Right now my home is 5500 sqft. Didn't you say you wanted 2800 or so square feet? I rounded it up. Am I missing something?
Quote: Originally Posted by savvyibd 3000 a square foot? That seems absurdly high. For that price, you can easily get a 10,000 sqft home in Greenwich! No sorry I meant 3000 sqft, I put a backslash between them accidentally. However, to do what you want properly I'd definitely say 3 mill.

Though, I really do want this home. Tough decision. Basically 3000 sq/ft with the quality of materials and construction that you'd want, with modern amenities (kitchens and bathrooms are very expensive these days), I'd say so ya.

If I can buy everything at once and ship it at once, that should save a good chunk of money; rather than picking out new things every week and having it shipped. I really have no idea how much it will cost to buy the materials needed to build the home, and who knows what the local laws are in regards to what I can and can not use, and what...
Quote: Originally Posted by savvyibd I'm more than familiar with unexpected costs when building a home, but you don't think it'll be possible to build a ~2000-2800 sqft home for under 1m? (I'm not including costs of solar energy, or the cost of the land) and materials from Europe? You're crazy.
Quote: Originally Posted by savvyibd Yeah, I am really curious what it's going to cost me to build this home. I'll make some calls to architects on Monday to see if anybody has any experience in replicating these types of homes and then ask what I should expect to pay per sqft. Of course my 350/sqft doesn't include furniture. THere's no way 1.5 will work. You'll be half way through construction and will realize you'll need another million...

The fact that Jay Z held back at first probably shows that even he thought it was a bit fucked up, and he knew he'd be opening himself up to more insults "You seem to be only concerned with dissin'...

Jay-Z laid all the cards on the table and told the truth, that he fucked Nas' baby mother. I don't see how it gets any more personal than that. Actually if you count subliminal disses, on this note "Is That Your Bitch" is...
