Really?

It is actually an interesting read. I'm not a fan of some of the exterior design elements, but the interior looks fantastic. And the original cost estimates look like they took nothing into account. Realistically 200-400 Pounds for this isn't terrible when you consider size, construction, design, etc. The initial estimates are what was way off.
