Fred -------------------- FORWARDED MESSAGE FOLLOWS -------------------- A very interesting discussion. Most people feel rather strongly about building their house as big as they can afford. As a group, we tried making our houses smaller than the average house, to lower our economical footprint (land use, construction materials). Our architect was really helpful in this. I loved Mary's quote: . "No personal laundry room, no extra BR, no extra family room, a small kitchen, etc. drives people of all ages to use the common spaces **which I believe is an asset**." (emphasis mine) Love Wim
