First of all you need to own §100,000. Then open the town map, move the left-stick over your house, press A and click on replace lot. Choose the empty lot and build a rectangular wall. Press left trigger and up (d-pad) to build another wall on the next floor, etc. until you've built 5 floors in total. Afterwards go to Build-Mode, select decorations and place the most expensive chimney (§5,000+) all over the property (inside and outside the building) until you've spent the §100,000. When you're done return to live-mode and the achievement will unlock.

To make this easier you can start a new game with the Gilman family as they already have lots of money and a mansion. Thanks to drabik for posting this tip in the comments.

drabik I used your solution, but I think you could add that this can be done quickly by starting a new game with the Gilmans, as they already have lots of money and a mansion. This can easily be done within 10 minutes this way.
