I know I seem to be complaining about my house. It does have features I like. The ease of movement in the circle is really very good!
I took an architecture class and the professor said "tell me something useful about designing a house". Most all the students talked about the pleasure of large rooms. *I* said don't waste space on hallways". There were other tests of course, but I did get an "A". And I have a pretty minimal hallway today!
