Wow have things changed over the past 5-10 years. Floor plans with living and dining rooms, closed dens and other areas of typical non-user friendly areas have been replaced with wide open and entertainment centered designs. Floor tiles that are 12â€ x 12â€ or 16â€ x 16â€ are phasing out and being replaced by tiles as large as 3â€™ x 5â€™, yes 5 feet long. Walk in showers are taking place of separate tubs and showers, highly updated kitchens and appliances are now expected, many man-made counter top options are taking place of granite, and the changes are endless. Add lots that are smaller than the past and tandem garages are now common.
