Garrell Home - Nantahala & office OR music room
After a very lengthy search of house plans, my husband and I have finally chosen "the one". I am wondering if anyone has built or is in the process of building the garrellassociates home plan called Nantahala. I have found many pictures of the plan, but they are all from the same home. I would be interested to see how other homes may be represented as well.
Also, I want to change the function of the "formal dining room" to be more functional for our family. We have 4 boys 9 & younger. I have 2 full file cabinets & work on the computer quite a bit. I would love an organized space for myself, my husband & for the boys to work on homework w/in proximity to me/kitchen. On the other side of the coin, I am convinced my boys will continue w/ music lessons & would love a "library/music" area. I am debating whether to keep it open as it is in the plan & use it for a music room / small den / library OR...close it off, add a door from the kitchen and use it as office / homework station.
Any expert advice would be most appreciated.
