Abstract: After living in a house, a family often finds that some spaces for living and for storage are inadequate while other spaces could be reduced. The purpose of this study was to determine how homemakers would reapportion the amount of living space and storage space provided for the different rooms in the house in which they live. House plans chosen for study ranged from 1,293.84 to 1,571.14 square feet. Excluding the space for walls, the floor space ranged from 1,118.57 to 1,322.82 square feet. Each plan had ten different rooms or areas.
