Need help with plan, please
This is our scaled down version of the Southern Living Idea House, Tucker Bayou. Loved original plan, just too big, so we tried to size to fit our needs. Just two of us, empty nesters. Draftsman will simply redraw what we bring him, not much input. I really don't have anybody to consult with so I would greatly appreciate any comments. Need help but some things to consider:
-Porch side will face pond, will have mostly 'back door' guests
-Upstairs for storage & will eventually finish bedrooms
-Study is sufficient for guest needs
-Hubs thinks W/D should be on outside wall, so they are in place, rectangle is built in coat rack by door
-Okay with one sink in master bath, want separate shower & tub
The two areas I am scared about are utility and master bath. I know I want lots of cabinets, big work table and storage in that huge utility room, but don't know where to start with layout and want to use space wisely. Would a kitchen designer help with that?
Also, would like vanity/seat in bath, but just can't find room.
Have read so many wonderful ideas and really admire those of you who can envision and plan things. This is definitely not my area and causing much anxiety, so much that I want to stay in my current tiny space.
