How did I miss this???
Okay, I feel rather foolish, but I need to make a change to my plan. Someone just pointed out to me that the bathrooms are going to be over a crawl space, rather than the basement/cellar...which will make working on the plumbing more expensive and difficult. And, we have that hunta (sp?)virus in our area, so no one wants to even go under a crawl space anymore!
So, I'm wondering if I can switch the master bedroom and bathrooms. I like the walk-in closet, but it's not a must. What I'd really like (if I have to make this change, anyway) is to put a powder room, opposite the keeping room, just off the stairs. This would be so much easier for people just arriving and kids sleeping upstairs (which may not have a bathroom).
So, here's my plan (which I love) and what I'd like is a powder room, master bath and maybe hall bath (I know that's a lot, but there are no bathrooms upstairs or in the basement) and the master bedroom/closet. The current bathroom area could be bigger for a bedroom. Basically, even with the left (outside) study wall and the front of the current master suite. The bay window is not on the current house, so it doesn't have to stay in the plan. But, the wall between the current master bedroom and bath is an existing load bearing wall.
Thanks in advance! I finally work out the kitchen and porches...but we are close. I'm so ready to be done with the planning and move on to demo!!!
Update on current plan. Here's the picture that convinced me that a table would work better than an island, just in case you're wondering why there's furniture in front of the fireplace, again :) From Lavender Lass farmhouse pictures
