We had that story about the open-concept (great rooms) going away, due to them being too noisy and less private.
But Susie disagreed, and sent in a couple of photos of her new 2,321sf house in Boise, Idaho that cost $491,000 (for those who might be thinking of moving).
I will never go back to walls to divide my living room, kitchen and dining room. And the more windows, the better – Our new home has 40 windows, and still attains a HERS rating of 70 energy efficiency.
The builder also surprised her with this tiled feature wall:
This was her previous house – Boise might be worth a look!
Builders didn’t get the memo about great rooms not being as popular either.
I think we can expect the great-room trend to stick around a while longer!
*Wink* I thought the first photo looked familiar, Jim! I loved my previous 1,964 sf house but we wanted something bigger so we had a custom 2,312 sf home built by the same builder (who I consider to be one of the premier builders in Boise). With so many windows and 9-12 foot ceilings, most people think it’s much bigger.
I say GREAT is good!
