  Other Pastures
We stopped by another development (Hampton Terrace, or something like that) by Red Oak Construction (the folks who are doing Trellis Oaks). We'd tried to find it last weekend but those little pasteboard signs for housing developments had us going the wrong way. These are more traditional designs, with the kitchen, living, and dining rooms on the ground floor and bedrooms upstairs. We didn't like them as much: not as much room although the square footage was the same, glass in the area that was designated as a breakfast nook with no room for extra kitchen supplies, very small pantries, and the open kitchen plan. Neither of us likes an open kitchen plan much. It's nice if you are entertaining, or don't want to be separated from your guests, but it makes the kitchen so exposed and there isn't as much storage in it.
