Bigger Houses, Less Satisfacton

Between 1975 and 2005, the average size of a new American single-family house grew by 48%, even though the average household size fell from 2.94 to 2.6 people.

Yet the bigger houses don't seem to be making people happier. In 1985, almost 60% of homeowners said they were very satisfied with their houses. In 2005, only 50% did.
