Abstract: "Most houses are not designed, they are accumulated."1 The need, as expressed by authorities in the fields of housing and family life, is for livable homes - homes not accumulated but designed to fulfill the individual needs of the family which lives within its malls, homes where there is sufficient space for family activities, homes where adequate storage space is available. The need has also been expressed by these leaders for more and better methods of determining the factors which constitute a livable home.
