The guesthouse can serve as a secondary source of income and help pay for the initial house. As the family grows larger, additional bedrooms and baths can be added on, and eventually the guest house can be absorbed into the main house when that income is no longer needed.

The core, while holding all of the functions of the home, divides the public and private side of the house allowing a large open public/family space and long open patio spaces.
