Another small layout
This sketch is an evolution of design ideas, so I need some input to see if I'm going too far one way or another. Shown is the main floor, which is about 1200 sq ft heated. The stairs go up to a 16X33 room (in the main gable only) for future expansion, or we might use it as a Master suite while we are still young enough to climb stairs LOL. The end of the house with the big wraparound porch faces a mountain view, as do most of the main floor rooms. That end of the house is also elevated due to the slope, and there will be a walk-out basement. One change I'm currently tinkering with would be to make the area marked 'Kitchen' into a living room, and have the great room be a large kitchen/dining room instead. We don't entertain often, and when we do it is small groups and very informally, so it might be nice to have a larger kitchen area. I'm also still struggling with the entrance to the Master BR. The extra wall next to the hall seems superfluous, except that that is the logical location for a TV, and I don't want people in the great room to be able to see into the MBR. Let me know what you think!
