Floor Plans for the Next Chapters. The Boomers are retiring. With over 80 million members, the Baby Boom generation will be looking for a different kind of house that suits their retirement. These houses will likely be in warmer locales, will be less square footage and in communities geared for the empty nest / retiree life style. So what will these homes be like?
The best parties are the ones where you can meet new people in informal social settings, engage in intimate conversations with friends, graze for food and drink, and maybe even watch a game. Achieving that level of enjoyment requires public rooms with a mix of settings – for standing and talking, sitting and conversing, eating, and television watching. It’s fun to think about how moving some furniture on party days might accommodate these functions.
Mid-Century Modern, Love that Palm Springs look? This design, plan 489-1, recreates the same effortless, outdoor-centric feeling of those classic homes. But unlike a home from the 50's or 60's, this floor plan feels totally up-to-date. Sliding doors lead from the great room to the patio for seamless indoor-outdoor living. A large, curving island provides a main spot for enjoying drinks and appetizers with friends. For dinner, head a few steps over to the open dining room. The master suite includes a large shower and spa tub with a view.
Site lines are something else to consider. It’s nice at a big party when you can see from one room to another, especially if you are the host. If there’s someone you really want to connect with, you may be able to spot when that person is free. Or maybe there are two people you’d like to introduce. You can see whether they are in the same general vicinity.
