You can live in an attractive, aesthetically appealing. upscale house AND you can do it so that it is quality built, architecturally beautiful, highly marketable and profitable. Small is beautiful and functional in housing. Smaller scale homes can be more livable, cozy, homey, enjoyable, low maintenance, easy to clean. They can be more affordable and socially responsible than the current trend of "MacMansions" that is chewing up America. Some of them can be built on existing lots without requiring new land purchase. Impress neighbors with style and freedom rather than with large scale imperaonally built square footage.
