I did not know that. Switzerland would be another example.

Two of the housed I carpentered on at Cerro Gordo in the 1980s were over-built to American standards.

There exists a website by Kate Wagner called https://mcmansionhell.com/. It's pretty entertaining. It's as much about mis-matched details and massing as low construction standards.

A good backgrounder here: https://mcmansionhell.com/101

And I see in January she put up a piece on Baffler on ruin porn: Staring At Hell
