Change in perspective
A few weeks ago, I had to walk the back pasture fence (getting ready to put the horses in there) and at the very top of the hill, there is a great view of the back of the old farmhouse. From up there, you can't see the neglect, the faded paint or the needed roof repairs. It just looked very appropriate to the space and quite charming :)
So...despite my desire to create a larger footprint, I think I'm going to bring back an earlier plan, with a few changes. Thanks to a few friends on the Smaller Homes forum for suggesting some more changes and here is what I have, so far.
Overall plan, but ran out of paper for the laundry/mudroom... From Lavender Lass farmhouse pictures
And just the kitchen side, with the laundry/mud room. I did add an extra foot (so 12' deep intead of 11') to the hall bath and sun porch. It gives a little more space with the wood stove and for the sink, in the bathroom. From Lavender Lass farmhouse pictures
If anyone has any suggestions or ideas, please let me know. I'm so tired of planning (I really am) but I'm also glad we didn't start demo, yet. I think the farmhouse will look a lot more authentic, with less overall changes. I guess walking fences is a good idea...and what I'm off to do, right now :)
