Question: How Big of a House Is Too Big

Item: Megahomes multiplying, but how big is too big?/Sharon Pian Chan and Ashley Bach, Seattle Times staff reporters

More Info: Seattle is considering new laws to limit the size of houses replacing those torn down on single-family lots. In Bellevue, residents came to a meeting with city staff Wednesday night to complain of huge homes that block out the sun and "overpower" the neighborhoods. Those advocating restrictions say megahouses hurt the character and scale of single-family neighborhoods.
