I think it's neat how it's in that self-contained little box, but I know I'm abnormal for not wanting a kitchen that is completely open to the rest of the house.
it'd definitely be cheaper to keep the layout as is! Way cheaper. Thanks for sharing, it helps!
Can you tell me where the fireplace is in relation to the kitchen and how wide (approx.) the living room is from the wall with the black sofa on it to the wall opposite it? Sorry--my request for floor plans has expanded to wanting info on the entire first floor, it seems. Thanks!
One more quick question--are those doors the lead outside from the current dining area? Or are they just full height windows? If they're doors, do you use them often?
Fireplace is opposite the couch (to the left in photo). I will try to take a quick video clip/panorama tonight that would explain it better. The doors behind the dining table were added by a previous owner (not original). We use them some in the summer, but its kind of an odd spot (just a few wooden steps to grass)
update--Dealing with sick kids right now. Will try to get to it today!
