Page 135 “LIVING IN THE REAL WORLD”
In this last section, we’ll look at some of some issues of house design that are related to the broader context of present-day reality. … Blended families can sometimes double the number of people under one roof, but there are also long-term visitors, returning college kids, and in-laws to contend with. Creating an environment in which there is reasonable level of privacy for everyone can mean the difference between household harmony and collective misery. … By paying attention to your needs as well as those who will be affected by what’s happening, you’ll create an environment in which everyone can thrive. We are none of us solo flights; we depend on each other. When that interdependence is respected and valued, the natural result is a more harmonious environment -- and a better way of life for all concerned.
