I just got an email from the drafter with our main level revision. I think I like it, but what if I don’t? What if it’s built and I realize where we placed the rooms are a hassle?
We switched around the pantry so it’s in a corner, as before we’d have to walk through the pantry every time we came in through the garage, and that seemed odd to me. So now we walk into a mud room with storage and such and then into the kitchen to the left. To get to the pantry now I have to walk through my mud room. Does that seem odd? And now my laundry room just has an entrance off the kitchen. Does that seem normal? I mean, I guess I have a second laundry upstairs, but I really wanted to enjoy the larger laundry room / utility room on the main level. Ya know, space for all that crap that doesn’t fit anywhere else, like the vacuum, cleaning products, mops, etc.
Not much else changed, but I see they added more detail for windows and such. I better ask if this is all the windows they are planning though, as it doesn’t seem like many. The master bedroom only has doors out to a patio, no other windows… Seems odd to me.
And what do you think of the dining area? I told the drafter I wanted space for a table to seat at least 10, I was thinking holidays at our house, although day-to-day we’d never really need this large of a table. I see for it to fit though it’s positioned the opposite way I expected. Does this make the room look too long since the kitchen island runs the same way?
Oh, I’m so confused. I never thought designing the floor plan would be this nerve-racking. I’m just scared of making mistakes at this point, as these carry through until the very end! And it’s so hard for me to picture this finished… And when do I get to see the front? What if I hate the front??
Thoughts? I’m totally open to any ideas, as now would be the time to change things before this is finalized!
