Perhaps you’ve figured out how to save a little energy in your home. But can you imagine trying to make things eco-friendly in a house much, much bigger than yours?
In 2008, the world was introduced to the first billion-dollar home, in Mumbai, India. It is owned, and was created, by the Ambani family.
The custom home stands 27 stories tall and cost around 2 billion dollars. The tower of a home stands 550 feet high and has 400,000 square feet of space to fill. The home includes six stories of parking lots, nine elevators, a ballroom, entertainment stages, a movie theatre, an ice room, and green rooms.
When you consider how much your energy bill is, compared to the size of your home, can you imagine multiplying that by 400, or even more?
If you’re ever in a position to build a new home, make sure to think about the green options available, so you can enjoy space and comfort, but save some energy, too.
