Floor plan- size and flow?
For months, I've been trying to find a floor plan that fits most of our needs, we being a family of 4 (eventually 5) looking for a footprint as small as possible while still being functional. I came across this floor plan and almost everything about it appeals to me, but I don't really know how to analyze the size of the rooms not having much experience in this area.
What are your thoughts at first glance?
One question I have is about the pass-through fireplace. Any problems with this design? I want an open layout and I feel like this gives the two spaces definition without closing them off.
Another: Do you think it'd be possible to reconfigure the rooms so that they could share a proper Jack-and-Jill bathroom?
One more: The screened-in porch, we're thinking, would be changed to a covered porch since it has just one opening, and we'd screen in the small porch off the bedroom, with a deck connecting the two. Do you think 6'x~14' is too small to screen off?
Thanks so much!
