Dual Purpose Rooms
As I am working to reduce the square footage of my plan, I am trying to think "outside the box" to combine additional rooms (already combining a fitness room with a space for guests!). I would love your thoughts about combining an office space into a dining room. My thought is that built ins could house the office and could therefore be closed up to utilize the space for dining. Another benefit would be to have a schoolwork area right next to the kitchen so that assistance can be easily offered and computer/internet usage can be safely monitored. Running away with the idea, I of course am imagining in James Bond/Macgyver fashion, a dining table wherein the top slides or removes to cover work space below?? That way, when working on a project, one would not have to clean it up/put it away to accommodate dining! It's late... am I making sense :)?
