It would cost $384 million to launch my 1500-square-foot house into space. Theoretically. Based on estimated weight of the house. But the point is, there's an app that can show you how much it would cost to launch your house into space. What you do with it once it's up there remains anybody's guess.

    What would it cost to slowly lift the same house into the upper reaches of the atmosphere via a giant helium balloon, and then nudge it into orbit with rockets thereafter?

    Fucking bargain. I’m sold.

    I’m waiting for the space house elevator.

  5. This is no good to me unless I can get my house into interstellar space.  If it is just orbiting the Sun, it is a waste of effort.

    Thanks for the feedback! We love the helium balloon idea!
