Need help on plans
We are closing on our house next month so I'm hoping to get the ball rolling on building in the next few months. I've been working on house plans for 5 years now and have a couple that Iike but want to focus on one now. This one began with some plans that CamG had on here and gave me permisssion to work with. I altered it quite a bit to suit us but still not happy with a couple of areas.
We have 7 kids, but one lives away at college and likely won't be home to live again only to visit. My kids range in age from high school to toddler. I don't like open concept (too loud) and I want big public rooms for when we are all together and we begin to have grandkids.
The dining room and master bedrooom windowsare wrong so ignore that. Also, I want to add 2 feet to the front of the house. Here's what I don't like. The master bathroom and closet are bothering me. I want my husband to have a separate closet or at least a separate area in a shared closet that I don't have to walk through. I also have a claw foot tub that I want to use. I want to be able to walk all the way around it for cleaning. The other thing is that I would like to put a third window so that it matches up with the 3 windows on the first level. That might not be possible. I am also open to pushing the windows together on the main level below if it has to. In the basement, the room that says office is a storage room. The designer that I paid to put these on the computer made a bunch of mistakes. I am old school (have a degree in Interior Design but raised kids instead of working) and use paper and drafting tools. I'm a little rusty and I wish I knew how to do the computer plans, but alas, I don't. Anyway, I'm looking for fresh perspectives.
