Build from the inside out????

I was wondering the other day...Yeah! I know that's dangerous ...if designers/builders ever built a sailboat inside-out? As in; configure the interior, AFA size, space,storage, headroom, sleeping quarters first and THEN designed the hull around it.
It *may* sound weird; but why not? I have specific needs/wants for an interior; as most of us do. Better to do a rough plan of that first and see what's available in production hulls before shopping; or do "we" simply accept what the manufacturer includes as close as we can get?

In line with that/those questions.....
Why don't builders/designers use a 'cubic foot of cabin space' designator like autos do? It would be nice to look at or sift thru a database of boats searching for cabins of a certain size available.

Just curious
