McMansion Backlash

The Boston suburbs are fighting back against the new crop of megahouses they are being built in the Boston suburb landscape. These are those 4, 000 to 10,000 sq ft homes that are poping up all over the area. these homes now have some intersting names such as "McMansion", "Hummer Houses" and "Starter Castles".

To give you an idea how the McMansion has been super-sized look that these stats:

1950- the average size house was 983 sq. ft.

2004 -the average size house is 2,349

140% increase.
