2400 sqft is a typical house size.

Joe - the article is talking cubic feet. Based on your stat of 2,400 sqft, and a typical house having 8 ft ceilings, that would be a typical house at just under 20,000 cubic feet.

The house will not remain past Dec 14. Probably because it was built with Texas building codes, and will collapse at any time.

@davehoug - this is America, where 40% of the food supply is wasted every year. What do you think is going to happen to a giant gingerbread house that was made only for bragging rights?

I was working at the MOA and remember the Gingerbread house that was built in the East rotunda. I thought that was a great idea. Although they were a lot of work I loved the large building projects that were built in that rotunda and wish the MOA would come up with another such project in the near future.

Wow, I thought the MOA (Minnesota Orchestra Association) just remodeled a much bigger gingerbread house called Orchestra Hall. Like a gingerbread house, nobody actually goes in there, but I don't think it would taste very good.
