HIGHLANDVILLE, Mo. -- With video provided by The Pensmore Mansion, we're getting a new look at the 72,000-square-foot home being built near Highlandville, a few miles south of Ozark.

The building was featured during a talk about green technology in Springfield on Wednesday evening.  The unique construction has been featured on several news programs, including nationally.

Steven Huff, a software entrepreneur, started construction on The Pensmore in 2008.  The house is bigger than the White House and fortified to withstand an EF-5 tornado.

In an interview last year with KSPR, Huff said, "We call it Pensmore.  Pensmore is a loose contraction between the French word for 'thinking' and the English word for 'more,' so it really means a more thoughtful way to build."

Huff said he wanted to show a building, regardless of size, could be safe and efffecient on a commercial scale.
