    It just seems like a very big, cold, lonely house. I’d love to live in a mansion for a spell, and I love your blog, but this one looks so sad. Nothing inviting or warm at all.

    The house was sold to settle a tax debt House owed to the government. He bought it back for a fraction of what he built it for, but more importantly, a fraction of what he owed to the government. Tax bill paid at a massive discount, he had his beloved home back and we the taxpayers get screwed yet again!
