When I was eight years old, I found a book of house plans at my grandparent's house.
I would sit for hours poring over each floor plan, imagining the possibilities.
The floor plan for our new old house intrigues me the same way. I've stared at it for hours, imagining a wall opened up here, a bathroom reconfigured there.
The family room is "Bedroom 4" on the floor plan.
It probably was a bedroom in its previous life.
It looks nice professionally staged and photographed for the listing.
Once the staging furniture left, reality set in. It looked tired and dingy.
In fact, the whole house did!
Not to be discouraged, I was lucky to find an amazing contractor who will tear down that wall and connect the kitchen, creating that proverbial "open concept" idea.
My attempt to visualize the room on the computer.
The kitchen designer comes tomorrow at 9 to see the space and hopefully come up with a great plan.
Ready, set go!
