[ Photo from NBM.org ] The Zweifels and a group of close friends and family spent more than 500,000 hours building this 50 foot replica of the White House (one foot per inch). For the record, every single piece of furniture is hand carved, every rug hand stitched, and yes, every wall is hand painted. And it took 38 years!
But they're not quite over yet. You see, the Zweifels actually keep up with the trends of the White House decor and update the model to reflect the changes made during each administration. Talk about committing to a vision! Now, if Hillary Clinton moves into the White House, do you think she'll hang a sign with this slogan on it in the Oval Office?
