Yeah, I know. I was being a bit silly, but also projecting the feelings of alienation I would likely experience living alone in a McMansion parked on a bit of carpet sod.

That would keep people together in group settings but might eliminate most of the 'stabby' problem as Wheaton puts it when it comes to getting along with people when cohabitating.
True, but it wouldn't help with the stabby problem people get when they share land or garden space...or pretty much anything at all.

I just moved out of 950 SF and into 1600 SF. Plus garage. I’m much happier.

That house looks like crap. I think you'd be better off buying a couple used shipping containers and combining them into a living space. I have seen people on Airbnb do it, and I am thinking about doing something similar. However, all the locations that I would like to live have extreme weather, so it would require additional planning. There is a great YT channel on tiny homes called Living Big in a Tiny Home: https://www.youtube.com/user/livingbigtinyhouse
