In my “ask me anything” post I was not surprised at how many questions related to the layout of our house. It is definitely unique in a few ways, and it is hard to get a feel for a house by a wall here or a hallway there. So I thought I would do a rough (definitely not to scale) drawing of the basic shape. After one glance at the kitchen area I am sure you can all understand my excitement to start that reno! The pantry is literally jutting out into the middle of the room so we are ripping all those walls out and having a much more open feel, and possible a butcher block island or harvest table work space in the center. Other than that one problem area I really love our house. It is bright, open and airy. The only rooms with 9 ft ceilings are the kitchen, family room and laundry room. The Foyer, Living room and Dining rooms all have soaring ceilings and sky lights that really make the house feel even more spacious to me.
