Do any of you have the perfect house plan in your head, even though you may never get to build it? Last night I couldn’t sleep, which is so rare for me but it’s probably because I’m excited about my little trip next week.
Building a house is not something I ever want to do again but you just never know! Last night I was in the kitchen cooking and baking. Chad and Vince were in the family room watching a movie. Ever sound a made in the kitchen brought a groan and moan from the family room where two couch potatoes couldn’t hear the movie. Have I said lately that I hate TV?
While trying to fall asleep, I came up with the perfect solution to our almost perfect current house. What if . . we just switch places with the garage and the kitchen/dining/breakfast area? Couldn’t do it in this house but maybe sometime?
Not everyone would love this house plan but I hate having people in my kitchen; I love turning my music up full blast and I spend a lot of time in the kitchen. Don’t even ask what happens when Vince wants to eat dinner with the TV on. In my new house plan, he couldn’t even see or hear the TV from the dining or breakfast room.
This is pretty much the exact house plan for the main level of our current house (not to scale) except I left out the master bath and that little strip in the middle on the left end (surely not to scale) is a laundry room and a half bath.
The only drawback is that the basement would be cut down a little. We wouldn’t put a basement under the garage and it wouldn’t be cost effective for all the extra concrete to put a separate basement under the right side (kitchen/dining/breakfast). I suppose another drawback would be that no one else in the whole world would want this house with the kitchen secluded all by itself but I’d surely like it!
