House Plan Critique
Hey Everyone! I've been designing my own home, and my wife and I think this is the one. I'd like to know what everyone on here has to say about it. Any and all comments are welcome!
A little background info: Its just over 2400 sq. ft. and will be built on 18 acres in Michigan. We will have a full unfinished basement to be finished later on. The kitchen/dining/living rooms will all be open to each other and have a vaulted ceiling. It will be heated with hydronic radiant heat in the basement, main level, and garage. Yes, that is a kitchen in the garage. My wife's grandpa has a kitchen area in his garage, and it works awesome for cleaning fish and processing deer and other game. The front of the house will be facing the west, and out the back the lawn will be surrounded by woods and a pond and orchard beyond that.
The only thing I'm not real fond of in this plan is where the dining table is located. To me it just seems like it's stuck in there as an afterthought. So if anyone has any ideas on how to make that better without adding sq. footage, that would be excellent.
