Someone Is Building A Real Castle In Central Oklahoma, To Live In…
Over the last few days I’ve been hearing people in central Oklahoma talk about a man building a 90,000 square foot (YES 90,000+) home in Edmond just North of Oklahoma City – which is being designed to be a literal castle. I am not saying that I think that he should not be able to do this, I think it’s fine, but it’s rather shocking… It is alarming in a couple of different ways, but hey, I’m not in his position, so I might do something like that too if I were, I just don’t know. The Lost Ogle (Oklahoma City’s progressive satirical political blog) is much needed, but not always on point. It’s a lot like The Daily Show in it’s imperfections, but necessary narrative. I just felt that this was interesting, and worth a share. And to be honest, I work in Real Estate, and there’s not way I couldn’t freak out imaging what this thing is going to be like after dealing with houses that are between 1 and 2 thousand square feet…
Last night, Channel 9 reported that the largest house in the US may soon be constructed in Northeast Edmond. It’s being built by the guy who owns The Key car dealerships. Or better yet, the Key chain of car dealerships. You know, like key chain? Get it? Haha!
From News 9:
There are plans to build the country’s largest single family residence in northeast Edmond.
Last year, the Edmond Planning Commission was asked to give approval to a mega mansion on the northwest corner of Sorghum Mill Road and Westminster Road.
“It’s truly a castle,” says Bob Schiermeyer, who saw the first renderings late last year and tells News 9 the plans call for a draw bridge and spires that reach 90 feet.
Schiermeyer says original plans called for a home that was around 75,000 square feet, but the home’s architect says the home has now grown to 92,650 square feet. That architect says, if completed, the castle home will be the largest single family residence in the U.S.
The City of Edmond says the home is the idea of David Frayer, the owner of the Key Auto Group.
Okay, I’m really sorry about the whole key chain thing above. It was awful, but keep in mind the guy is building a 92,650 square foot castle. I have enough enemies in town. The last thing I want to do is piss off a used car dealer who has a dungeon.
Also, since he likes to throw his money around on ridiculous extravagant things like fucking castles, maybe he’ll want to buy this website someday. Actually, that’s a weak excuse. You don’t have to be rich to buy The Lost Ogle. Hell, you don’t even need good credit. If you have a job and $99, we can get you in this website today. Come see us!
Here’s a rendering of the castle.
That’s pretty cool. Though, it’s weird that a car salesman overcompensates with a house and not a giant truck. I wonder how many Ford Fusions with 22% interest rate loans you could fit in that thing?
Anyway, a couple of other notes:
• Here’s a video of David Frayer at some used car salesman workshop. I think he also owns Express Super Credit Auto or Guaranteed Auto Credit Now or We’re Going To Put You In A Car You Can’t Afford Auto Credit. I don’t know, they all sounds the same to me.
• Most people remember The Key for those awful ads with Bizzaro Wayne Coyne that aired a year or two ago. Their whole gimmick was that they would give you free career and life counseling… while selling you a used car with a 60-month term at 22% interest.
• When he gets the castle built, I hope he doesn’t fall for the extended warranty. That’s how they get you.
