Missouri, United States

Architecturally speaking it may not be the most pleasing structure, but when it comes to quality and strength it’s at the top of the list. It’s called Pensmore and when complete it will be earthquake resistant, bullet & blast proof, and will be capable of withstanding an EF5 tornado. At 72,215 square feet it’s also one of the largest private single family homes in America, and even the world, and nearly 20,000 square feet larger than The White House. The man behind Pensmore is Steven T. Huff, chairman of TF Concrete Forming Systems, the company doing all the concrete construction work for the home. What’s unique about this place is that it’s being built with an extremely strong insulated concrete form structure, and when complete Huff plans on showcasing the quality of the product through the home. It will also include state of the art heating & cooling systems with thermal heat collectors, a geothermal ground source heat exchange, advanced climate control software, and a unique rainwater collection system. A home so large and so unique does come with a variety of conspiracy theories including some people who think it’s being built as a safe & secure White House in the event of major disaster. Theories aside, this place is set to be one of most impressive homes in the United States. Construction began in 2009 with a seemingly endless budget, and there is no word on when it will be complete. It will have five floors, multiple elevators, 13 bedrooms, 14 bathrooms, a music room, observatory, and a museum. The Kansas City Star reported that the main kitchen will span 40′ x 60′ – which translates to a whopping 2,400 square feet. There is a website solely dedicated to the construction process of Pensmore, but it seems it hasn’t been updated in many months. Scroll down and watch a aerial drone video showing off the size of this unique residence.
