Living Large, by Design, in the Middle of Nowhere

File this one under Lifestyle.

The American Dream of owning your own home is taking a decided turn toward planned unit developments set up on rural farmlands that are anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour from urban centers. Forget the quaint little cottage on a country road. More interior space and more security on smaller lots in gated communities are the guideposts. And the big box stores like Costco and Home Depot are right there to help the new homeowners fit in. Oh, incidentally, these manufactured communities tend to vote Republican.
