Why Are American Houses So Big? - The Atlantic

When I spoke with Lars Pettersson, a housing economist in Sweden (average house size: about 1,000 square feet), I asked him if he thought more Swedes would choose to have bigger homes if they had the option. I think in general that people would like to have some more square meters, he said. I cannot see why it should not be like that.
