Reviews - What do customers think about Colonial Homes: 165 Plans withAmerican Style (American Collection) (American Collection)?
Master Bedroom on First Floor Sep 18, 2008
I was disappointed because the majority of the plans in this book have the master bedroom on the ground floor. Even the section on "Early American Colonials" shows floorplans with the master on the ground floor. I've purchased 5 different new-build houses in the suburbs of NYC, Chicago and London and never come across a home with the master on the ground floor. Two realtor friends tell me they are unusual and difficult to resell unless in a retirement community. If you're looking for a ground floor master you'll probably find the book useful but anyone building a traditional house will probably be disappointed as I was.
