Another Modest Proposal

Given the prevalence of McMansions combined with the subprime mortgage crisis and the falling labor market in construction, here's my solution:

Renovations loans specifically aimed at turning giant fricking houses into duplexes so the family can stay in their home, but rent half of it out.

First step, I guess, would be revising zoning laws and neighborhood association bylaws to permit it.
