Big model homes have been gathering dust unsold, building licenses for new houses has reduced quite much, new home builders have very little work if any at all, employees and sub-contractors who have had years of dependable work in areas concerned to new home construction are out of work. To top it all off, energy charges are out of control.
May have that we have taken it all wrong? Most of all new homes raised in America over the past 15 years have been built with one main thought in mind:
Is bigger better?
The solution to that question will need much more thought and introspection than it may appears. After all to dwell in a smaller area with one-another can be troublesome. It surely is much simpler to ‘build big’ so each kid can have their personal bedroom, play and work areas. In this way, each can retreat to their own personal spaces to not confront struggles and noisy controversies. So to avert these conflicts?
Answer, we ‘build bigger’, give higher energy costs, property taxes and upkeep.
Concentrating on interpersonal family life discipline is one way to build smaller and live environment friendly. Think, at the close of our lives a house will not be visiting our deathbed but the relatives with whom we have invested our priceless endeavors.
The financial sustainability of a big house becomes more troublesome as the average home-owner ages. May this be why retirement homes are so visited?
If you make a smaller, well planned out home, you should be able to stay in that home for years longer than a ‘big’ home and have comfort in both the fiscal and long term private accessibility areas. The small home will also be simple for your children to hold if you were disabled or to sell if the need arises.
The sustainability of a small, non-glittery but yet cost-efficient house will be basic and effortless for just about conscious owner.
