Builder Ralph Ramirez, founder of ICH Builders in Coral Gables, Fla., has been including pajama lounges for several years and says they can be pretty small—as little as 10 feet by 10 feet. He often makes them larger, though, so they can serve other functions such as working out, paying bills, and doing homework. Toll Brothers Inc., a national builder based in Horsham, Penn., has incorporated this type of space for years in its larger homes (6,000 square feet and up), though CJ Ametrano, vice president of national interior merchandising, says the company prefers to call them flex rooms. She adds that the company recently began to incorporate them in its smaller 2,500- to 3,000-square-foot houses by scaling back the size of other rooms.
The most typical feature Collins sees pet owners gravitate to is a designated grooming room near the kitchen, back door, mud room, or laundry area. A pet shower, generally measuring up to 5 feet by 5 feet, is placed either at ground level or slightly elevated for smaller animals. A typical pet wash station features a vinyl pan base, tiled walls, and wand-style showerhead. Other features may include a dryer, cabinetry with built-in water and food bowls, toy storage, bed, wall hooks for leashes and collars, a “doggie door” offering access to the yard, and window strategically placed so a pet can see outside. Homebuilder Randy Thelen of Thelen Total Construction in Elkhorn, Wis., estimates that a typical built-in pet shower may run about $1,000.
