35 Of The Tackiest Suburban McMansions Spotted In The Wild

Published 7 months ago

During the 1980s in the US, a fad for mass-produced, cheaply constructed buildings saw a rise of “McMansions” located in suburban neighbourhoods. Their high-end location, spaciousness and availability saw a demand from buyers all over the country well until the 2007 housing crisis.

Nowadays however these monstrosities are merely entertainment fodder on the ‘’McMansions Hell‘ page for Netizens to gawk at and speculate about the people who considered these giant suburban eyesores a pseudo-luxury. Scroll below to check out some of the worst constructions we’ve ever seen as shared on this veritable virtual-museumesque page online.

Kobe (she)I don’t mind the design of the garage. It is the size ( way too big ) that bothers me. It overshadows the house. But hey – I hate the house anyway… too little colour, too much glass no personality, no plants, no curtains, … so…

GoldfishCrackersWhen I see no landscaping like this I’m always perplexed. Some may argue that landscaping costs money, but you know, so does watering, mowing, and maintaining a ton of grass… so why not pick the visually appealing option?

Shanilou Perera

Shanilou has always loved reading and learning about the world we live in. While she enjoys fictional books and stories just as much, since childhood she was especially fascinated by encyclopaedias and strangely enough, self-help books. As a kid, she spent most of her time consuming as much knowledge as she could get her hands on and could always be found at the library. Now, she still enjoys finding out about all the amazing things that surround us in our day-to-day lives and is blessed to be able to write about them to share with the whole world as a profession.
