Update on farmhouse
Hi all! Sorry about the new post, but I was having technical issues again and lost some of my pictures. I think I deleted them, when I was trying to rearrange them. Anyway, here's the update :)
We found out that adding on to the northeast (right side of the plan) is going to be difficult, not only because the well is over there, but so are the lilacs! Those beauties are over 60 years old, they're huge and I love them. They're so pretty when they bloom and any heavy equipment might damage the roots. So, no addition on that end.
Instead, after much debate...we really do love the little wood stove in the kitchen (with the hearth) and even with the chimney issues, we think it will work to just run it up through the attic and out the top. On the outside, maybe we can do something faux that looks like brick or stone, but still cute and not too tacky. Any ideas?
Now, the hot tub. This is the only thing (besides the rec room in the basement) that my wonderful husband really wants. So, after playing around with Summerfield's beautiful plan, I came up with this idea. The french door goes out to the screened deck, with hot tub. The mudroom will still lead to a covered deck or the greenhouse.
The BBQ and outdoor dining table/chairs will be off to the left (above the greenhouse, on the plan) in a covered pavillion...or patio. Our friends built a 'pavillion' which is my husband's new favorite feature, so we'll probably add that later on. It will also block some of the harsh west light, which my greenhouse plants will appreciate.
Thank you for all you help and please let me know what you think. I appreciate your input and you all have helped me so much! Thanks, again :) From Lavender Lass farmhouse pictures
