NO ONE HAS IT HARDER THAN THEIR FATHER DID:

U.S. Houses Are Still Getting Bigger (JEFFREY SPARSHOTT, Jun 2, 2016, WSJ)

Americans want bigger houses. Or at least that's what they're getting.

The median size of a new single-family house was 2,467 square feet last year, the biggest on record, according to Census Bureau data out this week.

With all that floor space, homes are 61% larger than the median from 40 years earlier and 11% larger than a decade earlier.

And we spend a smaller percentage of our income on them.
