4. Not just that...
...but its been shown that the McMansions last all of 10-20 years before they fall into disrepair. That not only displays someones stupidity but their vanity. But then again, I'm a minimalist. I use three rooms, plus one for the kids. Anything more would be more than I could handle, and I'm not hiring a maid :)
