You know we've always been proponents of living well without, necessarily, large amounts of money or space. That's why the Reincarnated McMansion Project really caught our attention. It's a program starting up in Australia that proposes dismantling a giant McMansion and reconstructing it as two more appropriately-sized homes...

McMansion owners will be petitioned to engage the Reincarnated McMansion project. A single McMansion will be selected, audited, dismantled and rebuilt; Reincarnating an unsustainable McMansion into 2 best practice, zero emissions green homes using existing McMansion building materials.

It sounds like the Reincarnated McMansion Project, while creating two efficient homes with much improved design, will also serve as an explicit example of the excess and needless consumption of the over-sized McMansion. We'll be rooting for the project's success and keeping an eye on their website for further updates on future progress.
