It's the same house I posted earlier showing the roof and the outside.
12,000 sg. ft. house. Over 170 lineal feet of railing including 5 curved stair cases.
There's not a straight wall in this house.
I can't take credit for this interior; this is the house I got hurt on framing.
Sorry about the quality; they're pictures of pictures.

I'm sorry you got hurt, that is the pits.

That is a pretty fair size house, some houses that size looks more like a hotel than a home, I don't remember what the outside of that house looks like.

It took me and 4 guys 5 months to frame. All that was left to do when I got hurt was to put in a few huge windows.
The whole perimeter was framed with 32 foot 2x10's, and some 2nd and 3rd floors were cut in later.
It took a year to finish the interior (they had to bring in another crew to finish the interior for me since I got hurt. And I looked forward to the trim work since the inception of the beast).
It was sold for $2.3mil.

That is one heck of a house, I know y'all spent some time on that roof. I think some architects just try to see how many different runs they can draw on a house sometimes. I know you were looking forward to that trim job, I know I would have been. Y'all did a great job on the house for sure, it really looks good, that house was no pushover.

The plans only consisted of a North and South elevation with no roof, and an 1/8" scale of the footprint.
They said, "put a hip roof on it".
(No permits required at the Lake of the Ozarks)
The lumber salesman showed up, and started laughing when I gave him a real rough sketch of what I came up with to figure the lumber from.
I just ordered 2 "units" (didn't matter how many sticks were in it)
of 2x8x32 and 20 65' 12" micros
and told him I'd order more when I needed it.
The cul-de-dac looked like a lumber yard.
Sorry to ramble on.

Looks phenomenal. I need to look at this closer at home. I have to do a similar thing at my house. I hate these split-levels. If anyone has a good "how to guide", I'd love to read it!
