David and Jackie Siegel, the owners of the largest home in the country, have renewed building the 90,000-square-foot property after financial difficulties forced the couple to halt construction in 2009.

Dubbed “Versailles,” the home’s plans include 13 bedrooms, 23 bathrooms, 10 kitchens, two elevators, two movie theaters, a roller rink, a bowling alley, a full spa, three pools, a man-made waterfall and a four-story grand ballroom with capacity for more than 500 guests, CNBC reported.

The home, once on the market for $100 million, will be the couple’s primary residence and is expected to take hundreds of workers two years to complete. The Siegels were the subjects of a 2012 documentary, “The Queen of Versailles.”
