Homes of the Rich reader Jonathan Brake has started a new blog called “The Mansion Project”. Jonathan is not an architect, but he loves designing homes and has been doing it for years. Over the next several months, he is going to be designing a mega-mansion of some 60,000+ square feet and will be posting the progress of the home along the way. I can’t wait to see what the home will look like. Go check it out!

    Interesting idea. Not trying to sound rude even though I might, but why do all these internet architects try and design houses of “some 60,000 square feet” instead of houses people might actually want to build? If you’re just doing this for the fun of designing a huge house then cool, otherwise it’s not good to start off this way.

      Having looked at what he’s already got going on his site I have to say I am so far impressed, I figured it would be a “lets see how big of a house I can make without any architectural thought what so ever”, but I now see he’s actually thought things out a bit.

    Oh this is going to be fun! The great room he has started already looks amazing. I am really looking forward to this project.

  • Thanks everyone for your interest and comments. As you can see I’m pretty early in the project, and I will be putting a LOT of thought into this. This will not be a game of building big for the sake of building big. This house will be functional, elegant, and who knows….maybe even something someone WOULD want to build someday! 😉
