We had the opportunity to offer a House and Leisure reader the real-life experience of staying at Stand 47, to test whether lives up to its printed promises. As one of our RestPilots, we thought it would be interesting to see what Jo would think about the design and technology that make Stand 47 different from the average house.
Stand 47 : What was your first impression of the house and did anything specific catch your attention?
Jo : Impressive! I found the open feeling of spaciousness along with the flows of spaces to be particularly engaging. The home appears comfortable on first impression and feels just right. It combines open space with great functionality.
Stand 47 : How does the real thing compare with your expectations?
Jo : Nice… above expectation.
Stand 47 : Tell us about a night at Stand 47. Give us details!
Jo : At 9PM, it was not cold outside. The inside temperature was 25 degrees and surprisingly hot, yet I still felt comfortable in the home.
Stand 47 : What is your opinion of the home next morning?
Jo : I felt great after a much better than expected quiet night’s sleep. Next morning I can definitely say that this experience has changed my perception of what a house built without bricks can feel like. I could feel very happy and productive in a home with clean lines and functional design like this one.
Stand 47: Could you describe your favourite aspect of the home?
Jo : The home is very comfortable with good flow and functionality. The modular design approach used in this home is clever as seen in the second bathroom and the additional bedrooms with their fold-up beds. I also enjoyed the separate pantry and scullery areas, which allow the open plan kitchen and living area to remain neat at all times.
Stand 47: And finally, we have to know, would you live here?
Jo: Yes, definitely!
