There's different sizes of this home which we can allow - it's quite inter changeable So we can change certain parts of the house For instance this one on display you walk up the stairs in the lead the leisure rooms right in front of you And we do have another option where the leisure room sort of sits more at the back to the the upstairs, Balcony Which is great hMM, and that's things everyone lives differently don't know absolutely different needs Yeah, definitely and also different style needs as well like everyone.
