Here are two floor plans which prove that some project builders just aren't trying anymore. I really cannot believe that these two designs are from a high profile project builder in Queensland. Take any ideals of energy efficiency; and design flair; and throw them out the window and replace it with a box; and some windows. :bash:

lol.

When i go to peoples houses i can usually navigate easily because so many house layouts are exactly the same.

Ive seen the same houses multiple times lol. its actually quite funny.

It's just as well the first thing you see when entering the house from the garage is the toilet because living there would give me the shits.

yeah i hate these boxes they keep building. usually for new govt housing commission areas like at carseldine at the moments. every house is a mirror image of the other with a different colour paint. shits me off

You are right.

However it basically comes down to cost. A layout like you showed there provides a faily large dwelling (which everyone wants now) but the simple shape and layout means it will be much cheaper.

Unfortunely energy efficiency and innovative design are rather low down the list of the average punters priorities.
