Floor Plan Feedback
I am pretty new to the forum here, I have been checking out all the amazing stuff you folks are talking about. My wife, 11 year old daughter and I are about to build a house. We are currently in a 2 bedroom townhome of about 1000 sq ft and looking to up size to a ranch with a partially finished basement. The main floor will be 1625 sq ft and the basement will have about 1500 sq ft, 1000 of that will be finished with two bedrooms and a media room. Then the rest will be unfinished storage/utility. We're expecting a new little one in June this year so we figured since that wasn't stressful enough, why not build a house too. At this point we're going to start digging at the end of this month, I was hoping for some feedback on the floor plan and telling you what my wife and I are thinking of doing as well. Here is an image of the floor plan, if anyone has used this one before please let me know how you like it.
Our current plan is to move the fireplace out of the middle of the floor and to the exterior wall. In addition I think we plan to move the wall for the dining area out an extra foot to give a little more room in the dining area. The next modification we will be doing is removing the bathroom door from the master bedroom and installing a barn door. Also we're thinking of removing the tub from the master bath and just building a 5x5 walk in shower. The only other thing that we're thinking of doing is removing the swing door on the 1/2 bath and installing a pocket door.
Any suggestions or feedback on this are welcome.
