How many average American homes can fit in 1 Romney mansion?

Last August, Romney submitted plans to quadruple the size of his $12 million oceanfront home in La Jolla, California. According to the San Diego Union-Tribune, Romney plans to knockdown a 3,009-square-foot beachfront house and replace it with a 11,062-square-foot structure.

So the question is, How many average American homes can fit in 1 Romney Mansion?

About 6.5!

    By the looks of things, I think my apartment would fit inside Romney’s car elevator.

    Cool, but the calculator is off. The example shows 6.5 1,700 sq ft homes, but if you plug in 1,700 sq ft in the calculator, it shows 6 homes.

    • Chris Kolmar in response to Ari

      We didn’t want to make the calculation overly complicated, so we always round down when another whole home will not fit. So in the above example, technically 6 of those homes would fit, but 7 whole homes wouldn’t, so we went with 6.

    Why only post something about Romney? Has this turned Political?

    @Jeanene If you don’t count the White House, Obama has one house in Chicago. You can find some information on Obama’s house in one of previous articles.Located here.
