For many, the only way to go with housing is up: more rooms, more space, and more stuff to fill it all with. The only reason to save money is for them to get themselves into further debt to finance that huge house on the hill.
More and more though, people find that the bigger house doesn't give them a bigger life or any more satisfaction while they're living among all the empty rooms. What once seemed to impress their friends and neighbors now seems over the top in a world of minimalist designs and real environmental concerns.
