Final floor plan? Crunch time!
After 4 years of dithering, the time is quickly approaching for me to settle on a design and get on with it. I found out my septic permit is still valid (Yay!) and I'm going to apply for my building permit this month! I want to get grandfathered in, since new stricter building codes are coming in January. Anyhow- this is my latest iteration. I need to make some hard and fast decisions within the next two weeks for my permit. Luckily, they don't have to see your plans, so I can keep tweaking as I go- within reason. This drawing is the same cross-gable idea I've had for several years, and hopefully, the best one. The little bump-out off the kitchen is an eating nook. It will have windows on 3 sides, and I picture spending a lot of time there, reading the paper, drinking coffee, or chatting with my wife over dinner. The top of the picture faces the mountain view, but there are woods in all directions.
I'm open for any and all suggestions! I think one gets there head so far into something that they can miss the obvious.
