each county takes is to require a minimum lot size -- five acres in Spotsylvania, three in Stafford -- for homes built in the most rural areas.

Some people favor clustering homes built in rural areas to leave more land open. In Fauquier County, for example, developers in some areas can put homes on only 15 percent of a subdivision's land.
