Kit Homes Survey: Which Features Would You Choose?

By MOTHER EARTH NEWS Editors


Tags: kit homes, advisory groups, survey,

House With WindowsThe editors here at MOTHER EARTH NEWS benefit greatly from the involvement and opinions of the magazine's readers. Our Advisory Group members (whose ranks you can join!) vote on their interest in the topics and artwork we propose, and give us feedback on all kinds of subjects, including gardening and poultry.

In the spirit of such involvement, we'd like potential homeowners to answer some survey questions on their preferences when it comes to their future homes' designs and features. This survey will be particularly relevant to you if you plan to build a new home or weekend cottage in the near future, but even if you're still just in the dreaming-about-it stage, we welcome your opinion.

Thank you for your participation and feedback!
