Is this the future of our mountain lands?

I saw this cabin-covered hillside a couple years ago on a trip to visit friends near Gatlinburg, over the other side of the Smokies in Tennessee. It was shocking then, and is even more shocking now, in this photo posted to the Blountviews blog a couple weeks ago. Just take a look. Commenters ask if it's real or photoshopped. How long before the hills everywhere look like this?

(Think this is impossible? There's a development across from the end of our road that will look like this if a house is built on every lot. And a lot more small-lot ridgetop developments around....)
