The program for this home is a couple who owns the house. They are starting and own a furniture company. They rent two rooms to younger individuals- one works at a craft butcher in a neighboring cul-de-sac, the other is an aspiring photographer. They also rent a floor to a family of four. The mother goes to work in the city, the kids go to a local school. The father of this family takes care of the house and the garden, the photographer helps him. I'm choosing this group of people because I wanted to help move the design forward in a more specific way, but this group also represents some general changes I think are important. In this model, all parties benefit economically with reduced burden. The business owners are able to reduce the financial burden of their shop by collecting rent from those renting rooms. Those renting rooms are relieved from the burden of ownership, which is risky and inflexible. In more intimate connection, there are opportunities for paying rent in non-monetary ways. The father and the photographer chip in by making meals, gardening, cleaning, etc. For the photographer, this provides an opportunity to develop her work without the direct pressures of the market- finding a job that provides the income and benefits needed.
