Houses in the United States continue to get bigger and bigger, as new-home sizes reached a record high in 2014.

According to the Commerce Department, the median size of new homes completed in 2014 was 2,415 square feet, up slightly from the year before.

“The American dream is still to chase the big beautiful home with the lavish master suite and the spectacular gourmet kitchen and the finished basement that has the wine room and the media room,” said Douglas Yearley, chief executive of luxury home builder Toll Brothers Inc.
