Kit Homes Survey: Which Features Would You Choose?

10/22/2013 3:00:00 PM

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!

Try to remember that we don't all live in te cold north. You need a different kit or alterations for different climates. The home in that picture would be a bad thing in hot sunny climates. We need big eaves and other shading structures. Think mid- century modern
