Open Floor Plan

If I had a dollar for every time I listened to architect say, “we removed the interior walls and opened up the floor plan,” I’d have, um, several more dollars.  It happens a lot in older homes with small rooms when people want a connection between the eating, living, and cooking spaces.  

Our house has an open plan which may be why it took me so long to see this story.  It was triggered while I was working on a script for the NAHB about the use of open floor plans in solar homes. Here’s a piece on three different kinds of homes, a rancher, a craftsmen, and a row house that were all transformed by an open floor plan
