    Why is it that alot of infills have the "dining or kitchen table area" at the front of the house? Is it suppose to flow better?

    I find coming into a living room with a nice fireplace to flow better and have the kitchen off the back patio.

    It’s more appetizing to eat dinner while looking at cars zipping by than looking at an alley full of crack heads.

    Millenials and Gen whatever is the 20 year olds today don't care about living rooms. Even in the house we bought the area considered a living area is more a common area for the dog with the living area downstairs.

    Just found it kind of different, partially when your garage is in the back and you opt for a mudroom, just seems odd to have a mudroom next to the living room. I think it flows better to have a living room with a nice fireplace the first thing you see when guests come over.

    Yea kitchen is always in the middle but then you have the two sides, one being where you put your dining table and the other your living room.

    That is the plan but when I was looking at design ideas mostly ever infill had the "dining room" table right when walking into the front door. I would probably reverse that but wasn't sure if there was a particular reason for it.

    Millennials canít cook. Just build a dedicated little cubby system for skip the dishes.

    More importantly, at what price is sharing a wall with someone considered asinine?

    concrete party wall will allow zero noise to get through but yes it does limit design ideas but living in the area i want to be in as a single family home will start at 1Mil plus, something out of my budget right now.

    Having lived in this duplex infill for 13 years now, the trades offs are different than I expected. Noise from the other unit is nonexistent. But the design of the house becomes long and thin. Been working good, not in a hurry to move.

    Your house is cool.

    Also I'm too cheap to do a full wide infill so I live halfway to Lethbridge.
