Please give feedback on Floorplan
Longtime lurker, first-time poster. We are close to finalizing our floor plan and would love any feedback / comments before we move to the detailed specification / estimation stage.
A little background:
1. We are currently a family of 3 with a 6 year old, but are hoping/trying to become a family of four.
2. We are building on just over an acre lot in eastern Wisconsin- the back looks out onto prairie/pond so we have tried to maximize view from great room and dinng area.
3. Design will be 2650 sq ft ranch with either exposed or walk-out lower level. This is Floorplan for main level. We may or may not finish lower level right away.
4. Hubby loves split-bedroom floor plan but i did not want to have to walk across house if we have another baby - so flex room near master that could function as office/nursery/playroom was compromise. Then, rather than formal dinng room, we made sure bump-out off kitchen was sized to fit our formal dinng table with leaf in and our buffet.
We have made several revisions and feel good about plans. We are debating location of deck and doors to deck. Door to deck was originally planned off left side of dinng nook - I had moved to French doors off great room. Now second-guessing that decision. Also debating whether to put deck on other side of house, as current location covers the windows on lower level.
Any opinions on this issue or other suggestions are welcome! Thanks in advance to all!!!
