Family sizes smaller these days and less of a need for the larger station wagon size housing rides?
The size of the housing container need is just as big or even larger in many cases.
If you consider more in-laws are coming to your home to roost and you return the favor of providing the nesting for their Golden Years.
Or divorces on the rise mean your daughter and two of the sweetest grandchildren are going to be at the family table full time.
You add two extra table leafs to handle the additional plates and chairs. Because of economics for one of your children who needs help getting back on their feet, with the raising her kids. Just like when you add more children, blend families and pets from a new marriage. And your three, my four and any extras that show up in the mine, yours, ours in the kid head count. The kidlets have to sleep somewhere.

So when we list a home in Maine for sale, I always think of the possible uses. For the many buyers with different needs out in the real estate audience.
That extra property listing space is pointed out for the possible extended family use, the hobbies of the buyer's lifestyle today, but also that it might work just fine for the home business.

More bedrooms means extra helpings of other living and work space too. Which could mean using the finished carriage house for a wood working shop. To restore the old 1959 Ford "Square Bird" car or Chevy Nomad wagon of the same year. Maybe the area to build canoes from scratch, to rescue old boats that long to see water again. Or pets, animals treated like family or large in number all need their space. So larger Maine real estate houses are needed.
It prompts the request for those 4,5,6 and more bedroom homes with all the additional rooms that will serve a purpose for the new house buyer.
Sometimes the extra bedroom is the space designated by the new buyer for the old doll, sports trophy, stuffed game collection or to do their writing, to create their art, Maybe to blog (smile). Photography set ups need some space. These extra bedrooms in the count above 2,3 are put into service. Or have pull outs for guests.
When you live in rural Maine, a little further away from population centers, the day to get here trip means overnight company.

The grand older Victorian homesteads had butler pantries, summer kitchens and were a step up from the humble log camp like structures the early Houlton Maine settlers were forced to use. Until development of mills, the experienced tradesmen population the vast woods of Northern Maine.
The bedroom count was not just from under one roof line either. The eight bedrooms could mean a half dozen in the main residences, another two in the area gramp and gram hung out.

Year's ago, the big 4 or more bedroom homes in Maine were to house large families with plenty of kids.
