Why Livability at a Glance®?
Through an ongoing series of consumer focus groups with women of all ages and backgrounds from around the country, a revelation emerged that changed our understanding of how many women look at floor plans.
Rather than starting with the elevation when looking at home plans, women often began by looking at floor plans. Which begged the question, “How do women look at home plans?” As we delved into this topic, we learned women look at a plan to determine “how the home lives.” Further research helped us realize there were four primary filters through which women evaluate designs: how the home entertains; how the home helps her de-stress; the flexibility of the home’s design; and the home’s ability to address her storage needs.
Turning the dream of building a home into reality can be a daunting challenge, with thousands of decisions along the way. Choosing a plan can be the most intimidating because it’s often difficult to visualize the finished home and how it will live. To make it easy we have created a new way to present floor plans to help you narrow the search for a design that fits your personal lifestyle and needs.
