Default Is your house very small?

Perhaps this is an idea for your new floor plan.

Not so good if you intend to have people visiting.

There are some other intriguing stuff on the site as well.

Bit dodgy if you need a dump during a dinner party...

But considering that there's only room for you at the table and maybe a dog or cat under the table, is that such a problem?

All the new flats round here seem to have the same economy of scale. The cooking space, which used to be known as the kitchen, is in the main sitting room. So when anyone is clattering about cooking, or the dishwasher or clotheswasher is running you cannot hear the television or conduct a conversation. This economy does not seem to be reflected in the price which is still rediculously high.

It is usually as much style as economy — “nice open layout,” “good flow” and similar terms are the real estate catch phrases of the day.

Maybe that’s why we now see “quiet” as a virtue for dishwashers. (And if you are really being trendy, your clothes washer is near the bedroom!)

Shaking head in wonderment. You can have yer trendy. I'm happy with my "Leave it in the basement and let it drown in the water it spews when the @#$&*%^ thing springs a leak."

Ah, well, I guess.

We might never do the laundry that way, but at least there would be no leaking.

Ours is on the main floor; having it on the bedroom floor seems to me like a way to ghettoize the laundry person once or twice a week, which is not acceptable.

But we are in no way by any possible standard “trendy.”
