plywood palazzo
 n.— «Wherever they are found, they share common features: large atrium-style hallways, showpiece kitchens, multiple bathrooms, walk-in wardrobes, built-in garage and garden statuary; a style familiar to viewers of the Sopranos. While McMansion is the most frequently used pejorative term, “plywood palazzo” is another.» —“Planners move to close the window on American mansions” by Dan Glaister in Los Angeles Guardian (United Kingdom) July 31, 2007.
