Do house plans reflect the way we really live?
Maybe it's resale, keeping up with the Joneses, or we just don't know what we really want...but do you ever wonder if most of these house plans reflect the way we really live? Of course, some of you may use every room, entertain constantly and have several children, but if not, do you really use these rooms? Do you wish you had more space in other areas?
While the 'Not So Big House' ideas address some concerns, I wonder if it's time to start thinking about a different type of home. One that offers storage, craft rooms, places for dog and kitty storage, rooms that are easy to heat and cool, less bathrooms and more items like greenhouses, vestibules, screened porches, TV rooms and kitchens that you don't need roller skates to get around in!
Okay, that's my rant, but if you sometimes wonder about these things, too...or if you have a great link to some fantastic 'out of the box' plans, please share them :)
