A Model Home Packed With Pandemic-Influenced Features

An upcoming community will feature innovations and forward-thinking housing design born from pandemic lessons, from package delivery zones to enhanced outdoor living. The community, designed by firm Housing Design Matters, came from a home builder who swept in and purchased land when many production builders pulled back at the beginning of the pandemic. Housing Design Matters takes readers through the community’s model home, touring each pandemic-influenced amenity. In one model, buyers are offered a two-person pocket office on the second floor in addition to a full-sized flex room on the first floor. Each model in the community features a parcel delivery vestibule, which keeps deliveries out of sight and away from any porch pirates.

Speaking of porches, the model home has both front and back porches. The front porch is perfect for socializing with the neighborhood. I think of it as the modern living room. The back porch is large enough to accommodate three functions, cooking, dining, and lounging. A beautiful pool serves as a backdrop and is perfect for both exercise and relaxation.

Since coming home should always be a special event, this house has an awesome welcome home valet. It is a great place for family members to take off their shoes, drop their backpacks and make the transition to home.
