Actually, according to the creator of the house, the mining hardware would generate 50 BTC per month. The idea is that the house generates the electricity and the money to live. It has three levels with 11 total bedrooms, 18 bathrooms, two kitches, a wine cellar, a garage for 8 to 10 cars, movie theater for 12 people, three pools, jacuzzis, balconies, an atrium at the center of the building with an indoor pool, and of course a family room, pantry, walk-in closets and so on.
