The merit of living in traditional house Score: 4 October 15th, 2017 by Hisahiro

Some people think that living in a traditional house is better than living in a modern apartment building, while others think the completely opposite, living in a modern apartment building is better than a traditional house. If asked, probably both groups will provide logical reasons to explain their assertions.
I personally prefer to live in a traditional house. I have two reasons.
First and foremost, living in a traditional house is much comfortable when you are going to rear your children. This is because, in an apartment buildings, you should care children's foot step noise because other family is living under the floor. When I was an infant, I was living in a second floor of the apartment, and my mother always apologized to the man who lived in the first floor because I was always running in the living room. I remember that my mother was quite stressed. In contrast, you do not have to care noise when you live in a traditional house. Since, it is almost impossible to prevent chid's noise, living in a modern apartment building easily makes you nervous.
Second, you do not have to be irritated by waiting some elevators when you live in a traditional house. Since most modern apartment buildings are extremely high, it is almost impossible to reach your room without using elevators. Indeed elevators are useful; yet it often irritates me when I am in a hurry, because I have to wait for the elevator for a minute. On the other hand, if you live in a traditional house, you will never be frustrated from elevators.
Third, you can design freely your room when you live in a traditional house. For example, I have a dream to live in a house with a fireplace and a chimney. Indeed, you do not need any fireplace to warm your room; yet I long for living in this kind of traditional European designed house. I understand this dream is impossible when I live in an apartment so that I prefer to live in my own house.
For these reasons, I prefer to live in a traditional house.
