We are in the process of building a house with an architect on an original design. If we went with a spec house from a builder, we could build 30% bigger for literally half the cost.Based on what people like in new construction tract homes and all the remodel shows and the like, I think most people just have no imagination/any desire to be remotely different, and they are probably using some construction company's 'architect' that is basically just using some bog standard mcmansion layout. Then again, I'm sure there are plenty of terrible architects.
