    I have to agree with Hammermill on the fact they should have changed the house into a homeless shelter.. It's a waste of space and money.. the owners should find a better way to show off their money and save the enviroment.

    In my opinion, the best makeover for this house would have been for the owners to turn it into a homeless shelter.

    I must say Patrick's comments echo my sentiments exactly. No wonder the US still 'houses' the highest burners of greenhouse gases.

    Why must the rest of the world 'carry' the US, at our expense, with their unsustainable decadence?

    I wonder his children will say to him in years to come? "Didn't you you know, or did you just not care?"

    Monster houses like this one tells me more of the owners' lack of environmental awareness than anything else. Consider the energy spent to buy, build and maintain a property of this size, the transportation and labor costs, not to mention the environmental damage that such a house carries with it, multiply that figure thousands of times, and you have an idea as to what I'm talking about.

    This is nothing more than a status symbol, and is nothing to be praised. So ask yourself: is it right to cause so much environmental damage in the pursuit of such wasteful opulence? Or would a more modest, and environmentally friendly structure be more appropriate?
