Part of this desire stems from homeowners holding on to the keys to the castle, says Tim Shear, vice president of Coppertree Homes. “In the old days, people would build a house, live there for three years, move and build again,” Shear says. “Now that’s not the mentality—people are looking to drop anchor in their new homes.”
Of the last 30 homes Coppertree has built, Shear says, only a couple of owners have opted for two-story great rooms. The builder is revamping that area with a different gathering space, both in its model home and its entry in the BIA Parade of Homes.
