"We started off with an 800-square-foot house with eight kids, and now we've got a probably 3,000-and-something-square-foot house, and now we're down to 15 kids."
In the video below, Gil and Kelly Bates sit down to answer a question that fans have been asking since the premiere of Bringing Up Bates: Just how big is your house? Gil and Kelly count up all the rooms and bedrooms and share what they are used for. Some might say that 3,000 square feet isn't much space for 21 people, but having lived in much tighter quarters, the Bates consider it a mansion.
