Following is a recent e-mail I sent to our architect after viewing the preliminary drawings and thinking about the changes to the rooms. I’ve linked to posts which shed more detailed light on our decisions.
1. Mud room – Plan B
2. Kitchen – Plan A with added bow window as in attached drawing. We’d like to have a table in the kitchen and move the sink and dishwasher (and an undercounter fridge) to the counter between the living room and dining room.
Also, the ledge between the kitchen and the DR should be a little wider, not wide enough to eat on but maybe 10-12 inches.
3. Conservatory – Modified Plan B giving the bathroom an extra couple of feet into the conservatory. Reconfigure the closets.
One central French double door with a window on each side off the back of the conservatory, windows along the side.
4. Living room – move door to center. No wraparound porch.
5. Master suite. Plan B closet as designed.
Bathroom extended to current wall. One sink. Is it possible to have a bird’s eye in the bathroom on the driveway side and a conventional window in the closet? Conventional window on the back of the house in the bathroom. Place to sit to fix hair, make-up possibly next to the sink.
I don’t know if I’ve hit all the issues but those are the ones we’ve thought through thus far.
Thanks for your work,
I can’t wait to hear the architect’s response. I love being in on the design process.
