Are homes smaller, are they taking into account extended families such as children returning to the home or parents living with them?

Home sizes are trending smaller with kitchen-centered design being popular. When you entertain where do the guests congregate? Designing a larger kitchen with easy access gives guests and family room to help out. Baby boomers tend to want a separate guest suite or casita attached by a breezeway.

Smaller footprints for homes are now more popular versus three years ago, people are seriously looking at “rightsizing” and also integrating energy efficient accoutrements into the home such as home-automation which governs HVAC, lights, security, window and door coverings and more! A strong majority of new homes are being purchased by “empty nesters” as their economics allow for buying in a contracted housing industry and attractive price points.
