Thinking Ahead to Holiday Parties. It would be a mistake to design an entire house around holiday meals and parties that only happen a few times a year. That said, plenty of new party-oriented homes are built each year for empty nesters in markets such as Palm Springs, Phoenix, and Dallas. The homes tend to have a big, central open space for gatherings that flows out onto a broad back porch, with a bar in the corner. That much open space may translate into wasted space for most families.
Circulation is something else to think about. As Dan Gregory points out in a post called Watch That Layout! the best house plans provide two ways in and out of the living room, dining room, and kitchen -- as illustrated here with Plan 929-1 by Donald Gardner. See how you can move from kitchen to dining area to great room and back to kitchen; the guest suite also has two ways in and out. That way you can conveniently escape after you finish talking with someone.
