My dream house, if I were rich.

My dream house, if I won a billion dollars, I'd pay people to help me design a house like this:

It would be built into a hill, like a hobbit house, only bigger. I'm thinking each level would be 1000 feet by 1000 feet with 10 foot ceilings. There would be three levels. Because they're all underground, they're warm in winter and cool in summer, which is exactly the way I like it. They'd have stone walls, at least on the side you can see. Windows and doors would be insulated. There would be an ordinary garage nearby, with a solar/electric car in it and solar panels on the roof.

The main bedroom would be very large, with enormous closets for storing all my stuff, and a queen sized bed. There would be at least one guest bedroom, too. The main bathroom would be large, the tub would be built such that I could lay down moderately comfortably in the water without sinking and drowning if I were to fall asleep.

The kitchen would have an enormous, expensive fridge with an ice maker. Also there would be a separate, large freezer (big enough to put a person in) and a dishwasher. Plenty of counter space, too.

The back yard would be huge and surrounded by tall hedges for privacy.

Not sure what else it would have. I'll have to think about it.
