So this term appears to have two separate meanings. 1:The oldest is identical 'cookie-cutter' houses with no individualism. 2:the second meaning is so different from it's surrounding houses as to be totally out-of-place. I have thought about what kind of house I have wanted to build, and I have been drawing it for about 15 years. Our ideas have changed and grown many times over the years, to finally come to the design that we have today. We have worked and saved money for this house, we have been frugal and invested. We have finally gotten to the place where we can build the house that we have designed. We are building this house out in the middle of a forest with no other homes in view, totally isolated from any other homes or 'neighborhoods'. I have recently been told that what I am building is a 'McMansion'. Am I? What is your opinion?
