Some years ago I saw Danish houses which were single storey with pitched roofs, and with the large upper area within the roof prepared for use. This meant that a family buying the house could make full use of the upper area with only finishing work, fitting a staircase, etc., all of which have been designed for.

This seemed ideal because the family did not have to use or look after too large a space until they were ready to use it. When the family needed more space (e.g. for a relative) then they did not have to either move house or get involved in costly and disruptive main building works.

Since most households change size over a period of time, this seemed to me a fine piece of forward planning.
