Default Room shapes and door position

I'd like to be able to create a room that wasn't just square, and pay by the square foot (within certain size ranges would be fine, and a rectangular limitation would be ok too). I'd also like to be able to use the edit tool to move doors to any spot on a wall. I think these could both be achieved without breaking any of the existing flooring and wall designs.

Together, these would add much needed flexibility and open up whole new realms of possibility in room and 'house' layouts.

The final touch would be to allow placement of rooms on more than one level, with stairs as an alternative to the same old door all the time when connecting a new room. This one could add complexity if not done well, but with a carefully designed interface could be great fun.

Maybe you jumped to a conclusion based on my use of the term "square foot". I'm not suggesting complexity - quite the opposite! This is just more "room" for fun. Moving a door is trivial (kids can already move windows and pictures on the wall - this is the same). There is also nothing complicated about drawing a rectangle instead of clicking a square when you add a room.

My 7-year old has been at this for just over a month, and he's constantly running up against the current limitations when trying to express his ideas - many of which involve recreating things he's familiar with, like his own bedroom. The little 5- and 4-block maximum wall space is an unnecessary limit - actually adding complexity to the process of modeling what he imagines - and frustration is never fun.

Just because they are kids doesn't mean they're all satisfied with a generic 'room'. I think these things would be easily implemented, and easily (and more successfully) played with.
