Please help with home layout.
I am moving this so that the picture is not buried so deep now that I know how to do it.
A little background:
The area next to the garage is a mud room. The stairs go to storage. Right now, there are no rooms upstairs.
The utility area next to the mud room is pretty much just indoor storage. We plan to put freezers and such in there to keep them out of sight.
The area by the stairs on the west side of the plan labeled mini mud should be a small mud room type area where someone coming from the garage under the house could drop their belongings. (coats, coveralls,shoes, clipboard, etc.) My DH works from his truck and this arrangement will work great for him.
I know the kitchen is just sort of throwed there with places marked for cabinets. We haven't really designed this area yet. More looking for layout ideas, maybe. I would love to have a long table in front of a row of windows there, I think, but also probably seating at the island.
I love the way the master bath is drawn but it takes up a lot of space. I need to find a way to integrate it better or switch to something else.
We are empty nesters so really don't need all the little bedrooms daily but we do have a lot of visitors (grandkids) so right now the plan for the rooms is one for boys, one for girls, and one for adults.
We do a ton of entertaining. The large garage on the NE corner of the house will be turned into a large game room shortly after we move in.
Right now, we are not really trying to focus on the details right now, more on finding a GREAT way to integrate the master suite, mini-mud room, kitchen and living room into the design first.
Thank you so much for your help. I have seen you do wonders for others.
