1.7 Million Dollar Home Improvement Job

Iconic pop-star Madonna is reportedly planning on spending $1.7m (US) on a home improvement job at her Manhatten townhouse.

It seems that, rather than join the local gym or find a bigger house, the singer is to add an entire new floor to her home to hold heavy gym equipment. In addition a wine cellar and a playroom will be added to her $32m home.

It is thought that the house will be extended by a total of 1614sq ft to make a total floor space of 13,847 sq ft.

Despite the fact that Madonna could certainly cope with the physical labour involved, it is thought to be very unlikely that the star will do the work herself.
