How big is Mike Lazaridis’ new house?
Under construction since 2006, it’s 26,000 square feet, sitting on roughly 100 acres on the shore of Lake Huron. By comparison the average size of a U.S. home in 2010 was 2,700 square feet on an average lot size of 0.5 acres. Scifi fan Lazaridis named the structure “Solaris” after Steven Soderbergh’s 2002 movie of the same name, based on a novel by Stanislaw Lem. But the locals just call it “the RIM house.”
