Okay, guys. I did something... Something... pretty drastic!
Take a look!
>:) I was told it was a brave move, but I HAD to do it! When I was thinking about how I wanted the floor plan laid out I got this idea and then I got butterflies in my stomach. I got the same feeling when I thought about the overhang and that was a good idea, right?!?!?
Well here are my sketches for my rooms. For the living area I was thinking that I would have a really tall room with lots of light. No turning back now! I managed to cut the floor in half last night... after about an hour of cutting.
I want the tall chimney and the wall it is on to be exposed brick. I want the brick to be the tan color in my palette that I showed you guys before. Here it is-
And here is a view from the other side. As you can tell from the first image of this post, the second floor is going to be the study/ library. I want lots of shelves and places to store things in there. I am imagining a fancy chandelier hanging in the living room! Ahhh! So excited!
Here is a closer view of the study. I want to be able to look out of it into the living space. I think it lets more light in and will help with the lack of electricity in this house. I plan on doing a little bit of wiring, but not much.
And here is the kitchen space! As you can see I was trying to imagine what cabinets, a fridge, counters, an island, and a bar would look like. For the beams on both this floor and the one above, I am going to find some that are made like the ones on the front porch. Again, I am trying to bring some of the elements outside into the inside.
And then here is where the stairs will go. It was suggested to me to do a mock up of my other plans and I agreed with the statement that the stairs like I was going to do them would block the windows. So NOW I am going with this! I think it should work a lot better.
I want to have shelves on all three walls on any exposed walls around the windows. I then want to figure out some way of making a spiral staircase all the way to the top floor.
Speaking of the top floor! Up there I will have the bedroom and bathroom. I have some ideas for all of the rooms in this house, and this post was really to just check back in with myself and see where things are going.
I am really happy with the new changes and I hope you are, too! Now I get to start decorating the inside!
Thanks for stopping by!
