Building Resumes on Largest Home in U.S.

The owners of a 90,000-square-foot home located just outside of Orlando, Fla.—dubbed “Versailles”—have resumed construction after a four-year hiatus on the project.

David and Jackie Siegel have resumed construction on the lavish home, which will feature 23 bathrooms, 13 bedrooms, 10 kitchens, two elevators, two movie theaters, a bowling alley, roller rink, four-story grand ballroom, three pools, and a man-made waterfall. 

The construction is expected to take about two years to complete. 

The couple had halted construction on the home in 2009, after facing financial troubles in finishing it—which was shown in a 2012 documentary, called Queen of Versailles, about the construction of the home.

The home was placed on the market for $100 million. But the couple now says they plan to complete the construction of the home and then make it their main residence.
