      • The pink seems a good contrast to the desert browns ! All I could think…how many people live in those massive structures ???

        • I know! the first one was quite huge but others are pretty average. My sister has two houses that were combined, maybe 10,000 square feet, not strange at all!

    I never really thought the houses would be so big but I suppose it is like the US and certain areas have larger homes than others?

  15. It’s most interesting to see the different styles – all of them quite ornate and fussy but each one different from the next. I could sit and look for hours, all the while deciding which one I would choose if I had to have one πŸ™‚

  16. Huge houses. How many families live in them? Gives the impression Saudi is all rich and grand. The architecture is beautiful.

    • Well the average person does not make much money. But there are tons of very rich people or it seems that way. Also there are families that are rich from years back maybe when oil came along, they have passed it down and many fathers buy homes or have them built for their kids!

    I really liked the house with the 3 turrets. That one is quite nice.

  37. Wow – who actually lives in these houses Lynne? Are they rich oil Sheiks?
    Distribution of wealth is very disproportionate I think judging by other pictures that you have posted
    Are you Ok taking photos of other people’s houses out there?

    • That huge one must be a very rich person but the others are just more average people. Of course they must have money but people spend years building a home and it might not be done until they save money for each part. I have been to many huge homes and they were people that I don’t think were so wealthy, obviously they had money but not oil sheik types! My sister has two homes put together- a huge huge home.

  39. Wow! That first one is a house? Sometimes when we are on vacation and we drive by mansions on the beach (many of them just winter or vacation homes) I ask myself, “What do these people do for a living?” Nice photos Lynn!

        • I honestly do not know. I feel looking back I was a “good deal” a work horse, from a good family (important in arab culture) and a person who he could intimidate easily and a nice package that he could use. As soon as I left, he easily moved on to another person with little thought.I never felt like a real person.

  44. I like the soft touch to the colors. The houses remind me of houses located in the Northern part of my country where i grew up. They build big houses like the ones in your pictures with very high walls.

  50. Some of these look very grand, Lynn! They must belong to very rich people – especially that first one. The pink one seems to be the odd one out, both in size and colour. It looks as though there are two houses there? And bright pink just doesn’t seem very Saudi -ish! πŸ˜€
