Morally Repugnant... yep, I'd say that. Toll Brothers have a history of purchasing honest old farmhouses with large plots of land all over my hometown. What becomes of the acres of paddock or orchard or overgrown once-upon-a-time cornfields? They are promptly converted to crowded neighborhoods of identical, enormous and flimsy houses. Toll Brothers take up the kinds of properties that really *could* be restored into grand mansions with character and structure and originality, and replace them with basically disposable housing. It's shameful.Post a Comment
But more to the point, I was surprised that *you* didn't find it morally repugnant. Tut, tut.
I also posed the idea that you're making the best of a bad situation, though, and I'll stand by that. Bush probably is going to create an economy that favors the McMansion. We'll all be horribly sick of Yuppie Housing Projects in four years, but at least you'll have made some cash off of them.
