Earlier this week, we wrote about David Crowe’s comments at last week’s International Builders’ Show in Orlando. Crowe, chief economist for the National Association of Home Builders, said Generation Y could provide a modest boost to housing so long as homes are built to meet their needs.
Specifically, smaller, smarter homes.
On Wednesday, Aurora Zeledon at Builder wrote about four floor plans that would appear to meet Gen-Y’s demands. Zeledon described the plans as, “Great for first-time buyers, downsizers, and budget-conscious shoppers alike.” Each of the plans is below 1,400 square feet, but there’s no skimping on amenities. Despite their humble footprint, the plans include, among other features, private master baths, walk-in closets and open kitchens.
