“We wanted to develop a program that would help people obtain a significant asset so that we weren’t just ending homelessness for people but actually providing the opportunity for them to climb out of poverty,” Fowler explains. “Owning a house means collateral for a loan, or something to sell and/or an asset to leave to a child or children.” Plus, new construction hasn’t been seen in this neighborhood (which includes numerous abandoned buildings and empty lots) in a while, although CCSS has rehabbed some buildings in the area. The budget for phase one of this project is $1.5 million, and $900,000 has already been committed, including $400,000 from Ford Motor Company.
Decide what size of home will best suit your family. Every family doesn’t need a sprawling estate and every family won’t feel comfortable in a small two bedroom home. Choosing a floor plan first should start with how large a home will fit your lifestyle. Assess how many bedrooms you will require for your children and how many bathrooms are enough for you and visiting guests. The size of your home should be the first consideration.
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.
They would be better served by a more intimate home that works for them day to day but is at the same time flexible enough to accommodate the occasional large gathering. The kitchen and great room in particular need to be optimized for family use since those spaces are used on a daily basis. The good news is that, with some afore-thought, it’s possible to get the best of both worlds; as in Plan 917-41 by The Homestead Partners, where there is a den that can be used as a media room for when the family is alone, and a great room that will accommodate an extended family holiday dinner or the occasional party blowout.
