People want energy efficient homes. One of the biggest trends, especially among new construction, are homes are made to be energy efficient. As our energy needs and resources change, home owners want to feel secure knowing that their home is prepared for a variety of changes we may see in the future.

Well designed and open planned houses are gaining in popularity. One consequence of a recession is that families have been sharing homes and living in smaller spaces while saving money. Many families are no longer looking for the biggest house then can get, instead opting for spaces that are well designed and allow a family to be near each other while at home and preferring open plans that make the house seem big, without actually being larger.
As washing machines have become more sophisticated and quiet, families look to move them out of the basement. If you’re washer can run quietly, families are now opting to keep laundry areas on higher floors, closer to bedrooms. No one wants to lug those heavy basket up and down stairs for little benefit!
