Earlier this week, something that had started to seem unthinkable happened: Kylie Jenner was spotted, out in public, for the first time since September. TMZ broke the news with photos and video of Kylie walking her presumably-pregnant self around Los Angeles' Hidden Hills neighborhood, alongside her BFF Jordyn Woods and mom Kris Jenner.
Kylie wasn't just hanging out anywhere in LA though. The Hidden Hills spot was actually a construction site, where Kylie is reportedly planning to build a new, absurdly lavish home. TMZ, always a wealth of Kardashian and Jenner knowledge, obtained the building permit for the lot and the planned house is HUGE.
The permit, which was issued in December, apparently lays out plans for a 9,187 sq. ft. first floor, a 5,304 sq. ft. second floor, two huge garages (measuring 1,200 sq. ft and 1,468 sq. ft), and 1,836 sq. ft. of covered porches. Oh, and a cabana for the pool—you know, as you do.
The job described in the permit will cost more than $2.37 million and that's before Kylie starts decorating (which will obviously be costly in its own right).
According to Entertainment Tonight, Kylie plans to build a whole compound and live a much more private life going forward. The source says Kylie is "looking for a quieter life and wants to buy land to build a compound. Kylie wants to build a farm, garden, and have a horse stable. Even a pregnant Kylie is all business."
Kylie is reportedly due in February, and expecting a baby girl with her boyfriend Travis Scott.
