Fun to read an anthropologists point of view of American homes. Pretty fascinating. The most startling observations for me were the disconnects between what we think we need and what we really do - like investing money in master bedrooms and backyards when we spend nearly zero time in them. The statistics about clutter, over consuming, and possessions were depressing. We Americans own, store, stockpile, keep and covet lots of stuff.
