Weighing Up The Space Conundrum
I’ve been watching with interest the activity at one or two houses near me. We have comfortable executive style detached houses and although the gardens could be bigger, there were certainly no complaints about the space inside our homes when they were originally built. Families now want even more space – the large double bedroom for each individual child no longer suffices and they need their own ensuite and study area. it’s incredible how our tastes have changed in a few short years. Trying to get all this luxury from one existing domestic footprint is often a great compromise – a balancing act between the actual needs and the fancied desires to keep up woth this family or that. A rather expensive game of keeping up with the Jones’s in fact. Generally it will work out cheaper up front if additions can be made to the existing home. that’s if there is enough garden or possibility of building up into the roof interior. The cost of selling one house, buying another, with the searches and legal fees does make this a most expensive option.
