need layout help-awkward window
I'm in the process of deciding which layout will work best for our 1930 tudor kitchen. The primary dilemma is the size of the kitchen (11 X 9) and the placement of the windows. One particular window that rests at 36 inches from the floor and 22 inches in from the wall is causing a headache--it leaves no room for a normal sized cabinet to be below or along side it. I haven't looked into the cost of raising the window, because the exterior of our home is brick and I imagine it will be quite costly. We've also considered just drywalling over the window, since there will still be a window over the sink and two in the adjoining dining room.
Have any of you struggled with this same issue?
I've include a link with pictures of our current kitchen and a couple of layout suggestions. Both suggestions involve drywalling over the window.
Any suggestions anyone could offer would be greatly appreciated.
