First Time Poster ... Finally! Plan Input Requested
I am so excited to finally post part of our house plan.
I have been waiting 3 years!
Purchased 1920 Colonial Revival house, in need of a total redo,
the inside had not been touched in 20+ years,
Then came cancer...
Plans for renovation came to a screeching halt,
while my husband and I dealt with the grief of diagnosis which meant not being able to bear children.
While recovering I read this Forum just about every day!
The posts really brightened my spirits and gave me some hope!
Fast forward to today...Cancer free (but expensive)!
Budget has been pared down so we are staying within the 32' square 2nd floor footprint.
Original 2nd floor 4 small bedrooms, 1 full bath and a 1/2 bath (both small).
Now our 2012 Plan is:
3 bedrooms on 2nd floor, with back half of home a
master bedroom and nice master bathroom, connected by a closet lined hallway in back.
And front two bedrooms with a Jack & Jill bath in between for our future children we hope to find...
The Big Challenge:
The front bath has a very large window 4' x 5-1/2 feet!
And the window is 2 feet from the floor!
We would prefer to remain good neighbors by not having a daily peep show!
So we want the toilet and shower/tub back from the window.
To me the entrance to the front bathroom on each side is a bit awkward, as I have to admit I love balance and symmetry.
This front bath & bedroom plan entrances seem a bit crooked to me.
I would greatly appreciate your changes, comments and suggestions, as I see so many helpful people here.
We are amazed by the wealth of knowledge and creativity that is shared.
We humbly ask your frank thoughts and opinions, and I hope the photo attached is readable as this is new to me.
We now can look forward with hope and happiness.
Many Thanks in advance,
PS we are a tall-short pair. DH is 6'4" and I am 5'3" on a good day!
