What do you think?
Hello everyone. I don't post often. I lurk around and follow a couple of different forums here at Gardenweb.
I wanted to jump in here and ask your opinions on this house plan. It's on the smaller side so I thought you all may be able to spot potential problem areas as far as functionality in a small home. We recently bought a 10 ac piece of property that is basically a corn field right now. Having the land and privacy was more important to us than having a huge house. We plan to pay on the land for a couple of years before we think about building, but I've already starting browsing home plans and clipping pictures.
This is one of the home plans I keep going back to. The bedrooms seem to be a nice size. I like the smaller kitchen because I'm not much of a cook or an entertainer. I spend most of my spare time reading or on the computer so I like the sitting area off the master. I'm not sure I know what they are talking about when they say "dividers".
The only negative I see so far is the small windows, but this may be a plus as far as conserving energy? or I guess I could modify the plans I'm sure to allow for larger windows or more of them. The other thing is I think it would be nice if there were another 1/2 bath in the mud room/laundry area but then again that would just be another bathroom to clean, ugh!
Once upon a time, we lived in a one bedroom ranch and I thought I would die to have a few more bathrooms. Now, we live in a tri-level and have three and between emptying the trash cans and keeping them stocked with TP and linens, I'm suprised I have time for anything else, LOL.
I'm not a sewer, so I think I would change that area to maybe add another storage closet or something more functional.
What do you guys think? See any other down sides to this plan?
Thanks a bunch!
