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?
Cass Community Social Services had certain criteria in mind for their tiny homes. We looked for comfortable, livable homes and wanted variety in our plans, Fowler says. Distinctive character was important as well. “We were drawn to one-story homes with ample porches or decks and wanted at least one ‘standout feature’ in each house,” such as the metal roof on one house, and the stained-glass window in another. “We like a flood of light, so we wanted many windows on most or all of the walls,” Fowler adds. CCSS also wanted relatively accessible floor plans ranging from 250-425 square feet. Each tiny home features a kitchen, bathroom and bedroom.
Decide what type of dwelling type fits your location. Depending on where you live could dictate what type of floor plan will best suit your family. Dwellings such as single-family homes give the ability to have outdoor space for a yard and backyard and provide more space to spread out in. An attached home similar to brownstones or condos in a urban area could also meet your “single family home” needs but divided amongst a multi-level floor plan. Split-level floor plans means your entire floors are split to separate levels and don’t consume the entire footprint of your home. Decide which of these types are found in your city.

Dean had never built anything before so he decided to give it a shot. He thought it would give him great entertainment, education, and experience.
