Build more living space even with stupid local building codes.

One great idea

Saint Petersburg, FL

#1 Jul 11, 2013
What is a millionaire to do when he wants a huge mansion, but local laws only let him build one level?
Build underground, of course.

John Z. Blazevich, chief executive of shrimp importer Viva Food Group, followed the letter of the law when he built his enormous 50,000 square-foot, Spanish-style home. Only one level is above ground, and rest of the massive Rolling Hills, Calif. residence extends five stories into the earth.

Of course this would be easy on Longisland cause its a pile of sand. The only problem is local governments have nothing better to do than tell people what they are allowed to do with there so called "private property" they "own" and there would be sure to be some problems but I think this Idea is really cool anyway.
