McMansion is a term used to describe a type of large, ostentatious, and often poorly constructed suburban house that tries to look luxurious. These houses can range from 3,000 to 10,000 square feet and have over-the-top design elements like turrets, faux stone facades, and grand staircases. They are often built in large subdivisions, and unlike well-made grand houses of the past, they are made of poor quality materials and will wear down easily. The term is a combination of “McDonald’s” and “mansion.” Many people, including a construction project manager, reject these cookie-cutter houses in favor of historic architecture with more charm and character. The McMansion Hell subReddit has a collection of photos of these types of houses.
