In order to make this change Turbine would need to remove all thin, special, large wall, large yard, huge yard and enormous yard items. That way there be no further need for these slot types. Back when housing was first done Turbine had a terrible time with special items looking horrid when hooked. Or the slots in specific houses not working correctly - Items in these slots did not look right.
