Is House Too Small?


Hi Carl,

We have stakes in the ground outlining where the foundation for our new home is to be dug.

Why does this outline of the foundation's perimeter look so small?
Is that how it is supposed to look?

It doesn't look like the rooms on my plans will fit in this small space. I’m concerned!

Hi C.M.,

You may be experiencing what most everyone experiences with house size, even those who build houses for a living. It is called, “spatial relations”.

That is, nothing looks spatially the same in a different medium or form. It can scare the daylights out of you when so much money and planning is at stake...continued.
