So the family began building this 90,000-square-foot, $100-million Florida mega-mansion that has been nicknamed Versailles, with 13 bedrooms, 10 kitchens, a full-size baseball field, two grand staircases, a rink for ice and roller skating, two tennis courts and a bowling alley. The project, and its pitfalls, are featured in the documentary The Queen of Versailles.
