No matter what a house looks like on the outside, there are certain conventions which are followed as to the interior layout. When I was a kid, I remember once going to a family friend’s house and noticing that their kitchen and living room were upstairs and their bedrooms were downstairs. It is almost always the opposite. To this day, that was the only house I’ve ever been in where that was the case.
Also, I’ve never been in a house with two basements (one below the other.) Why don’t more houses have extra underground levels? Beyond the fact that it’s easier to build up than down (if that’s even true?)
I’ve never seen a urinal in a home bathroom. This is unfortunate, because urinals’ efficiency (for males) is totally unequaled. One could be installed in conjunction with a toilet. And yet they don’t seem to exist.
You frequently see finished basements, but you rarely ever see finished attics. Why is this? I think it would be awesome to have a finished attic.
These are just some of the unusual house configurations that I somehow feel compelled to bring up. Does anyone have any answers or any other input about this?
