Death of the McMansion: Could it be true?

(Photos via Cote de Texas, read her hilarious post!)
Wine rooms, media rooms, swimming pools, water fountains, tennis courts, children living two floors away from their parents, and adults constantly giving themselves away in body, mind and spirit to maintain the facade. All the while "family" turns into a thing of the past.
(More info here)
If the death of the McMansion allows children to know their parents and parents to enjoy their children and if it allows people to nourish their souls again.... then this demise can't happen soon enough for me.

This is just my
opinion of course:)

I remember when the people that moved into these .....structures.... started freaking out about their power bills.

Oh please let this be true. We are new to Houston, and horrified by the sprawl, McMansions, and lack of front porches.

Great blog, I'll be following it!
