That's the price to pay for a McMansion in Briargate. Or, if you have the money, just pass the masses in the toll lanes.

And it is still better "than where we came from" they will say.

For those of us who grew up here- not so much.

Or a McMansion in Castle Rock, or in Highlands Ranch.

The dictionary definition is :"a large modern house that is considered ostentatious and lacking in architectural integrity."

We only wanted 2500 sq ft, but that comes with an almost equally large basement.
