Very few of us live in a recently built house; the vast majority live in building built in a previous era with floor plans designed to suit the lifestyles of a previous generation. For instance, the ubiquitous row houses of American and European cities (whether known as a terrace, town house, or brownstone) were built in the main for moderately prosperous families, their interiors a warren of little rooms, which could be closed for privacy and heat retention. Services (food, laundry, storage) were confined to the basement, and roof space was used for servant's tiny living quarters.
