When I first got married, we bought the biggest house we could afford, which wasn’t much. For 17 years, I worked in a “galley-style” kitchen – baking my own bread, cooking meal upon meal for loved ones, and wishing I had a newer home with a huge kitchen.
Then we moved into a much newer home only to discover that the U-shaped kitchen wasn’t much bigger. In fact, have you ever noticed how many of the newer homes often have smaller rooms, while many of the historic old homes have large rooms, including larger kitchens?
When looking for a new home for a large family, it can definitely be worth-while checking out older homes with bigger rooms that may also have lower prices – particularly if they need some work that would not be too difficult to do.
