I think we have a difference prespective on what is a big house or what is called a mansion compared to the White House from when it was originally built.

Back then that would have been considered huge but given our standards for mansions and such, it does look unimpressive.

I had the same reaction too when I saw it first but then when I think about some of the mansions even in JA, today's houses dwarf it.
