That's two of us rare people, then, texasgirl!
My home is all of 1,300 feet. When the kids lived here (2 of them), it was mildly "cramped" and we used the sun-room as a third bedroom (or the basement for a while - but it's only partially finished.
Those McMansions are not only ugly, and cheaply-built, but they won't stand for centuries, that's for sure. I have thought for years there should be a moratorium on "new" buildings until ALL of the foreclosed or vacant existing homes are occupied, AND all abandoned large buildings are taken apart and their materials re-used to fix up or build others.
