While it’s all relative to where you stand economically and geographically, how much is too much?
In the Wall Street Journal today there is an article about a small cadre of very wealthy people that are building bigger houses than ever before while the average size new house being built in the U.S. has shrunk from ~2500 square feet to ~2300. The big houses featured in the article were all more than 50, 000 square feet.
We all do things because it makes us look good and/or feel good. Do these big homes really do either for their owners? You’re just like these big home owners (only they might have a few more zeros added to the end of their bank balance amount). Put yourself in their shoes. How would you answer?
