Floor Plan - Any suggestions?
Hello everyone - We are building for the first time and would really appreciate any suggestions you have on our floor plan. Hopefully you can read it okay. In case you can't read the drawing, the dimensions of the rooms are:
Living Room: 17 x 17-6
Dining Room: 11 x 17-6
Family Room: 17 x 18 (our designer included 4 feet of the kitchen area in her numbers)
Kitchen: 17 x 16
Breakfast Nook: 8 x 10
Mainfloor Bedroom/Office: 13 x 15
We have a 1 acre plot at the end of a cul-de-sac - it is a wide plot, but not very deep. The garage will be at the end of the cul-de-sac with most of our land being to the right (off the kitchen/family room). The home will be a walkout. We will have no neighbors to either side or behind us because our land is surrounded by wetlands so we'll have some great views.
We will eventually be a family of 6, so 5 beds and 3 baths upstairs is a must. We also wanted a bedroom on the main floor and a 3/4 bathroom for when my parents come to stay. The main floor bedroom will double as my office.
We're really hoping to catch all those "I wish I had done that differently" things BEFORE they happen!
Thanks so much for your help. I really appreciate all your advice to make our house better!
I'll post the upstairs photo below.
