A lot of potential home owners make mistake when conceiving the kind of house they desire. A case in point was a family of five. The breadwinner decided that his three daughters would each have separate rooms. The wife also had her own separate room. The husband was not left out, he reserved spacious room for himself.
With this arrangement, it is hoped everyone would have peace and high level of privacy.
LONG TERM IMPLICATION
When the daughters were all grown up, each left for University. Later, they all got married in turn. Now only the couples are left behind. The many rooms now lay empty. The man wanted to rent out the rooms, but there was a problem: how could he share his sitting room or lobby with a total stranger, a tenant! Loneliness was gradually creeping in. At least they need the company of someone in the compound to do cleaning. It seemed to be the best option.
The only solution to this problem is to reshape the house i.e carve out a room and parlour selfcontain. HMM. Easier said than done. This will gulp some money, especially now that he has dwindling resources.
