Exterior Entry Doors Keyed Alike?

14 days ago

Our builder asked us if we wanted all the exterior doors keyed alike. Said many or most preferred different keys for certain doors... ?

We have a) front door, b) back patio door, c) attached garage entry door and d) detached workshop/garage.

We will rarely use the front door and will rarely lock the attached garage entry door. The only lock we'll likely use much w/ a key from outside is the detached workshop. No kids - just the 2 of us. Generally prefer to carry fewer keys.

I can't figure a use case for having anything keyed differently. Am I missing or not thinking of a use case?
