I noticed that in England and in Europe in general that the houses are very small. I read somewhere that the average house in England is approximately 1100 square ft., and the average house in Canada and in the United States is somewhere between 2100-2500 square ft. I'm not sure if this totally accurate but I would definitely believe it. Go on Google Streetview and you will notice the houses in suburbs of London and Liverpool in the U.K. and very small, and the cars are small and everything seems small there. Also it's always raining and the weather in England in general sucks! And the beaches are way too cold!
Not to diss the U.K., seeing as it has a great history and great influence on the world, and London is indeed a world class city, but I think Canada and the United States have better housing and the fact that everything is bigger is a huge pro for the two North American countries. It feels like we actually own our property unlike in Europe. Look at new houses being built in Texas, Tennessee, North Carolina in the U.S... they are like 4,000 square feet on average and many of them are equipped with a personal swimming pool. In Canada, suburbs of Toronto and Vancouver are being more and more populated with large houses with big basements, and I just love big it is in Canada. But the U.S. will always rival in largeness. My friend who lives in Texas lives in a 6,000 square ft. house with a huge swimming pool and it's in a forested community, and he always posts pics of him jumping in front of his front yard in front of his 6,000 square ft. colonial house and it's awesome.
You tell me how many Europeans own 6,000 square feet houses.
No disrespect to Europe, but we really do it big out here in N. America.
