Well, I'm going to get back into the blog swing of things since I have a new house to renovate and no motivation to do it! I have heard that some people want me to keep blogging, so I shall. If you are one of my normal blog followers, that have been so patient with me and are back, THANK YOU SO MUCH! You are amazing. I am going to attempt a regular posting schedule of Monday and Thursdays. No guarantees with 2 jobs (one full time and one part time) and a toddler, but I will try my best.
I started getting motivated by searching online for help with a moodboard for both the living room and master bedroom of our new house (this is house #3 for us).
I am using floorplanner.com to make my free floorplan. I started out trying to measure every dimension and input it into the tool, but I'm no architect, my husband doesn't measure accurately, and we don't have a need to be THAT OCD. So I'm making do with how the dimensions compare in my head.
And voila! Here is the current floorplan:
We want to figure out a way to make the right-hand side of our house use the space we have more efficiently. We currently have a huge laundry room, 1 whole bath, and 1 bedroom that probably could fit 2 bedrooms that share one bathroom. I am hoping we can use the space to make a nicer bathroom, one that isn't incorporating 5 doors!! (5 doors??? WHY WHY WHY?). It is nice to have an inside laundry room, and I appreciate the room for storage, but it can yield some space to help our our guest bath. Maybe we can even make a reading nook?
I also think we could make the formal living room the future dining room, turn the dining room into a play room, and expand the kitchen into the TV room a bit to allow for an island.
So here is what I want to do with the house, in the future:
I'll give the home tour later on this week. The pictures of this 1970s time capsule are wonderful.
