The Plan

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!

Pin It!

I'm so happy you are "back." You are one of the very first blogs I started following, back when you lived in that lovely green house and the cute little house in ??? (Have forgotten the exact location). Then the transformation of the SF home was amazing. You have lovely style and taste in home design and decor. Looking forward to following along on this journey too!!
