While our people  in our society seem to keep getting bigger, new homes being built  by 2015 will be getting smaller.

The average size of the current single family home now is 2,400 square feet, but in the future it will be 2,150. Why smaller? Experts are saying builders are being greener, and small spaces are more efficient for heating and cooling. Plus, many builders are gearing up for baby boomers, with walk in showers and hand rails standard in some homes. Gone are the days of the McMansions, everybody get ready to be nice and cozy in your new home!
