50-Year "Forever Home" Floor Plan
Hi, all. I've lurked here for a while, and think it might finally be time to ask for your input.
I'm trying to design a smallish home in which I can comfortably spend the rest of my life. I started with the plan you can see in my follow-up post, and tried to streamline and simplify from there. I'm pretty happy with what I've got so far (i.e., the plan in this post). Houseplans.com lists the original at 1388 square feet.
Some additional notes: I'm kind of a hermit, so this house won't need to accommodate lots of guests or a large family ("snip, snip," actually).
-The survivalist-sized pantry came about due to the remote nature of the home site (Washington State's Olympic Peninsula) and my tendency to buy in bulk.
-The deleted stairs only led to an optional basement. I'm favoring a crawlspace.
-I wouldn't mind more closet space, but don't think I'm willing to sacrifice anything for clothes I rarely/never wear.
-I'm going to trim a couple feet off the front and side of the garage before this is done.
I'd love to hear what you guys think. Thanks.
