In order to make homes live larger than their actual square footage, they should have long site lines, connectivity between rooms, and minimal hallways. Also, they must include amenities that buyers are used to seeing in much larger homes. This 2,077-square-foot home does all that and more. This house might be considered the “Rudy” of the production home arena. The site lines and spatial relationships allow it to play a whole lot bigger than it actually is.
