8,000 SF? There is only 1 SF.

I think that would only work if you owned some kind of ridiculous exotic car (but if you're living in a house like that in LA I would think that is a giveaway).

Exactly. In the old house (built 1865) the heating has incredible difficulty dealing with all the tiny drafts and generally poor insulation of a house from that period (we added insulation 10 years ago as best we could, but there's only so much you can do). In the new house, we had the heat set at 60 degrees F towards the end of construction. At that level, the house felt appreciably warmer than the old house, whose heat was set much higher.

Could you put up authentic giraffe hide wallpaper to cover up the ugliness?

If I did that, the houses would look even more drug-dealer.
