Making this home a house-addition to cabin
We are building an addition as we have currently outgrown our home. Current home is a stockade style (verticle log) home.
1st floor consists of: approx. 1200sq/ft more like 1140 with knee wall areas for storage upstairs as it's a story and a half.
2 bedrooms. (1 decent size one more of an office size.
Living/Dining Room: 13 1/2 X 24' stairs are in this room.
Kitchen: 8X9 with laundry on the end we are making this the laundry/pantry.
1 small 8X5 Full Bath.
2 small common area closets (coat at door and linen in hall before bath.
Master Bath and Small loft area with bathroom.
We are builing off the back of the home. The new addition will be either Coastal style or craftsman style but with "period details" and white kitchen cabinets.
Attached are links to exterior photos of the cabin and two layouts for our exsisting home and addition.
I need help!!!:)
What we want:
Larger dedicated laundry room (old kitchen can do this)
Pantry (old kitchen)
Light and bright as our cabin interior is warm but dark.
A connection to the outside.
2-3 bedrooms with a Master included as a room.
Large family room or sitting area.
Screened porch (mosquitos are horrible)
Mud room/area and or storage bench and lockers.
Eventually outdoor kitchen and pool.
We also don't want the house to be so large that we cannot live here after the kids leave the nest (currently 7 and 4yrs)
Thank you for any assistance I know you are all very talented people. I've been lurking and viewing for years.
Time frame for addition is asap and size should be 1400 or less sq/ft.
