Well, we know that if they had put them on big lots and they were eating up all this land and cutting down all these trees...they would be getting yelled at by nature activists.

the majority of homes in Texas are not built on big lots. They are built on small lots. this is why the suburbs look so dense in Texas.

Here's Cherry Hill Village in Canton, Michigan, about two dozen or so miles west of Detroit. Built in "Neo-Traditional" style. Car garages are located on the back of the houses with alleyways connecting them.

And of course it has a small downtown, built in a sort of similar fashion. Parking is located behind the buildings with a few on-street parking spots in the front.

Looks pretty idyllic through streetview. http://goo.gl/maps/jfbcM

Parts of the development are still under construction after it initially began around 2007-2008.

Interesting. Not sure I'm digging it but cedar park has a bunch of houses that were built similarly with the garages in the back and alley ways.

Too many bright colors to me. I'd prefer architecture with more earth tones.
