Gardening is a related (6) occupation/activity It is already cheaper to (7) grow/cultivate many fruits and vegetables than to buy them in the shops and the house of the next decade should take this into (8) consideration/ account.
Another important question is (9) that of energy conservation. The proportion of income (10) spent on keeping warm is steadily going up, and, with the cost of energy (l1) likely/expected/bound/sure to double in real terms during the next ten years or (12) so , many large badly-insulated old houses will become extremely expensive to use. The demand will be (13) for small, well-insulated homes (14) built/located/situated in warm protected areas and making the (15) best use of the sun's warmth.
