I've blogged repeated about my anti-McMansion sentiments. (I'm pro small space living) And here's empirical proof that McMansions are indeed going the way of the dinosaurs, from Trulia and The Atlantic. It's not just the economy, it's also cultural values shifting. People increasingly are downsizing by choice. Paring down to live simpler lives. The cost of utilities to support a McMansion are sky high! Plus, landscaping & maintenance will kill you! Not to mention you'll spend a fortune on gas driving out to the vapid house in the boonies. Your social life is another casualty of McMansion living. You think you have this fabulous palatial space to entertain, but none of your city friends make the trek out to visit.
What do you think? Can we retire the McMansion? Or will it make a comeback?
