Concept Home Principle #1: Flexible Floor Plans feature designs and building systems that enable interior spaces to be reconfigured more easily.
This is compared to the way closet systems adjust to meet changing lifestyles. Early adulthood requires space for professional gear. A new family needs room for baby clothes. Empty nesters may use the space for an elevator.
Concept Home Principle #2: Organized and Accessible Systems reduce interdependencies by disentangling mechanicals from each other and separating them from the structure and floor plan. This organizes the systems so they are laid out efficiently and logically, and provides easy access for repairs, upgrades and remodeling.
