If you're going to shell out $188 million for a new house in one of the ritziest areas of the U.S., you might as well get a few luxury cars out of the deal. At least, that seems to be the rationale behind this insane mansion in Bel Air, a 38,000-square-foot palace with interiors that will stun you—just maybe not in the way that most mansions of this caliber might.

Spotted by Business Insider, the fully furnished home at 924 Bel Air Road first went on the market in January 2017 for $250 million, then one of the highest prices on the U.S. housing market. The property was built on spec by luxury developer Bruce Makowsky, whose company, the Los Angeles Times wrote in 2017, "caters to billionaires who pay tens of millions for his move-in-ready homes stocked with countless amenities and hand-picked designer wares."

This eye-boggling mansion—literally named "Billionaire"—is no exception. It comes with a decommissioned helicopter used in the show Airwolf perched next to the swimming pool, decorative chrome-plated guns, a Champagne-bottle pinball machine, a lounge area that has enough sofas and chairs to host a whole nightclub, a 40-person movie screening room, a four-lane bowling alley, two fully stocked wine cellars, a game room that comes loaded with enough candy to rival an M&M store, a spa room that comes equipped with its own massage tables, and a personal gym. Ah yes, and the "auto gallery" filled with $30 million in luxury cars.

As for the actual accommodations, the four-story house also has two master suites, 10 "oversized VIP guest suites," 21 bathrooms, three kitchens, and five bars. The real estate listing notes that it also has a "seven-person full-time staff," though it doesn't mention if their salaries are included in the price tag.

It's truly a sight to behold. See the listing from real estate firm Hilton & Hyland here.

Looking to Downsize? You Can Buy a 5-Room DIY Cabin on Amazon for Less Than $33,000

Five rooms of one's own.

If you’ve already mastered DIY houses for birds and dogs, maybe it’s time you built one for yourself.

As Simplemost reports, there are a number of house kits that you can order on Amazon, and the Allwood Avalon Cabin Kit is one of the quaintest—and, at $32,990, most affordable—options. The 540-square-foot structure has enough space for a kitchen, a bathroom, a bedroom, and a sitting room—and there’s an additional 218-square-foot loft with the potential to be the coziest reading nook of all time.

You can opt for three larger rooms if you're willing to skip the kitchen and bathroom.Allwood/Amazon

The construction process might not be a great idea for someone who’s never picked up a hammer, but you don’t need an architectural degree to tackle it. Step-by-step instructions and all materials are included, so it’s a little like a high-level IKEA project. According to the Amazon listing, it takes two adults about a week to complete. Since the Nordic wood walls are reinforced with steel rods, the house can withstand winds up to 120 mph, and you can pay an extra $1000 to upgrade from double-glass windows and doors to triple-glass for added fortification.

Sadly, the cool ceiling lamp is not included.Allwood/Amazon

Though everything you need for the shell of the house comes in the kit, you will need to purchase whatever goes inside it: toilet, shower, sink, stove, insulation, and all other furnishings. You can also customize the blueprint to fit your own plans for the space; maybe, for example, you’re going to use the house as a small event venue, and you’d rather have two or three large, airy rooms and no kitchen or bedroom.
