Homes currently under construction include Plan 915-7, a cozy 310-square foot cottage with an appealing front stoop and a front bump-out with several antique-style paned windows; Plan 915-10, a cute 356-square-foot, shingled bungalow with a neighborly front porch, an open feeling and lots of light; Plan 890-2, a 320-square-foot modern-style cottage with an inviting front porch, an L-shaped kitchenette and clerestory windows for added light; and Plan 915-3, a charming, classic American clapboard cottage with a welcoming front porch, plenty of tall windows and a fireplace.
For example, Plan 890-1, shown above and in the lead image, provides a small, easily maintained home in only 800 square feet yet lives large due to the many porches that extend the interior space outdoors. Another plan type that we’ll see more of is the classic Florida Split Plan, as in Plan 481-5, shown below. With a large group gathering area between owner and guest bedroom areas, resident Boomers can have their children and grandchildren visit for as long as they want without everyone being on top of each other. A nice feature of this type of plan is the ability to close off the guest bedrooms from the rest of the house. All it takes is a pocket door in the right location to give each, owner and guest, their own private area.
Outdoor Fireplaces. Outdoor fireplaces have reached flashover – taking off throughout the country, even in warm environs. Why? They are an inexpensive way to create a frequently used amenity. We probably do more outside than inside fireplaces, says Binkley, who primarily works in Florida.
For starters, the size of the home will shrink. As the Boomers jettison stuff, weaning themselves from some of their accumulated furnishings and other material, they will find that a smaller house suits their needs just fine. And since these houses will likely be situated in warmer locales, generously sized outdoor living areas will be a must.
