You have a good point. However I think your analogy doesnt take into consideration that you can't really grow your house beyond that of whats dictated by the size of your land and planning permission, whereas a company's size is completely elastic. It can start the size of an outhouse and grow to a factory (or, unfortunately, sometimes the other way around!)


Or evolve your Business? Apple did Desktops/Laptops and started selling iPods, MS did software and started selling Xbox, etc.
