Back where I started...and quite happy about it :)
I posted this on the Building forum, so if anyone wants to see the latest in my 'soap opera' like farmhouse remodel, please click on the link!
While I'm back to my old plan, for the reasons explained in the post, I hope the changes we've made will make it even better. It's always been my favorite kitchen...and all the other plans (while some had wonderful details) never had the bright, sunny and open kitchen that this one has. Plus, it's just so darn cottage-y...if that's a word :)
Thanks for all your help and input! It's been a real challenge to incorporate all our favorite things into the plan, without adding things we like in theory, but probably wouldn't use on a daily basis. Of course, I'm keeping the greenhouse! LOL
With these long winters, that and the sunny kitchen (and claw foot tub) were my favorite things. The fireplace and wood stove are going to be great, especially when the power goes out...which it did the other day...for twelve hours. That really made me think (again) about a smaller home, easy to heat and maintain, even when the power does go out...which means the well goes off, the heat, the horse's electric fence, etc....but I digress. Thanks for looking and have a great day :)
Oh, and ignore the second plan...it's just there for the greenhouse.
