Utility spaces and garages should be placed to shield the house from cold winter winds. In snowy climates, put garage and house entries on a sunny exposure to help melt snow. In many US climates, an inside corner facing southeast provides outdoor space sheltered from cold northwest winds. Put windbreaks between the house and cold winds, and cut trees which block summer breezes and desirable sun.

These kind of houses enjoy the luxury of space and usually have a front yard and a backyard. Single family homes are popular among families and are traditionally considered better to raise children.
